Eve Friedman is a modern and historical flutist. She has recently performed with the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia, Philly Pops, the Delaware Symphony, Opera Philadelphia, American Bach Soloists, and Tafelmusik. She is the flutist and president of The Halcyon Consort, Inc., a chamber ensemble of flute, strings, and piano.
She can be heard on recordings with Philadelphia Baroque Orchestra Tempesta di Mare, early and contemporary works with Melomanie (including works of her husband Roberto Pace), and the world music ensemble EZUZ. Her performances have been broadcast on NPR and the CBC.
Her solo playing has been called “particularly fine” by the Washington Post. About her book, Tone Development on the Baroque Flute, the journal Early Music America wrote, “This carefully researched, imaginative book should be on every baroque flutist’s bookshelf.”
Dr. Friedman serves on the National Flute Association's Historical Flutes Committee, and has recently been a judge/guest artist for the American Musicological Society, San Francisco Conservatory, and the Flute Society of Greater Philadelphia.
Each summer, she performs and teaches at the SummerKeys festival in Maine with her husband, composer/pianist Roberto Pace. In the summer of 2003, they traveled to Italy to perform at the festival Incontri di Canna.
She received her Master of Music from Boston University (as a student of Boston Symphony Orchestra principal flutist Doriot Anthony Dwyer) and holds a Doctor of Music from Indiana University. Her current faculty appointments include Rowan, Drexel, and Temple Universities.
