Our next monthly playing session will be April 4th with Judy Linsenberg at Zion Lutheran Church, 5201 Park Blvd., Oakland, CA.
Judith Linsenberg is one of the leading exponents of the recorder in the United States. She has been hailed for her “virtuosity” (Washington Post), “expressivity” (Seattle Post-Intelligencer), "fearless playing" (SF Classical Voice), and combination of “masterly control with risk-taking spontaneity” (Early Music).
Ms. Linsenberg is Artistic Director of the Baroque ensemble, Musica Pacifica, whose performances and eight recordings on the Virgin Classics, Dorian, and Solimar labels, have received international acclaim and several awards, causing the ensemble to be described by the press as "some of the finest baroque musicians in America" (American Record Guide) and “among the best in the world" (Alte Musik Aktuell).
She is a summa cum laude graduate of Princeton University, holds a doctorate in early music from Stanford University, and has been a visiting professor at the Vienna Conservatory and Indiana University's Early Music Institute in Bloomington. She has taught at Stanford, the San Francisco Conservatory, and at numerous early music and recorder workshops throughout the North America.
