Join internationally-acclaimed flute soloist and recording artist Lindsey Goodman for “Déjà Flute,” a 30-minute electroacoustic live-streamed recital exploring things “already seen,” or, in this case, heard! Works by American creators Mark Zanter, Eve Beglarian, and Russell Pinkston ask us to probe our memories and our hearts through kaleidoscopically-shifting electronic music. This online benefit concert supports Ms. Goodman and charitable funds organized by New Music USA.

Lindsey Goodman is a soloist, recording artist, chamber collaborator, orchestral musician, educator, and clinician. Renowned for her “generous warmth of tone and a fluid virtuosity” (Charleston Gazette), Lindsey has performed solo and chamber concerts, taught masterclasses, and given presentations at countless series, festivals, and universities “with energy and artistry, conveying her exuberance and creativity” (Pittsburgh in the Round). Performances “played with conviction” (New York Times) have been heard across three continents, including at Carnegie Hall, Eastman School of Music, Edinburgh Festival Fringe, University of Cincinnati College–Conservatory of Music, New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival, Oberlin Conservatory of Music, Google headquarters, several National and Canadian Flute Association conventions, and across China.
A committed advocate for living composers and electroacoustic music, Lindsey “appears to know no fear in tackling the most demanding music” (Pittsburgh Tribune-Review) and is an active commissioner of new works with over 145 world premieres to her credit. For over 18 seasons, she was solo flutist of the Pittsburgh New Music Ensemble. Her debut solo album, reach through the sky, is available from New Dynamic Records, and her second solo release, available from PARMA Recordings, is returning to heights unseen, “an excellent album of compelling works expertly performed” (The Flute View). Her most recent album, Etereo, also from PARMA Recordings is “an enthralling album of new works for flute” (The Flute View). She can also be heard in solo, chamber, vocal, and orchestral performances on the New World, Albany, New Focus, and Navona labels, among others. Lindsey has given multiple professional recitals in New York City, performed concertos from Mozart to commissioned works in the United States and Canada, and been featured in live and recorded radio broadcasts on stations across the country.
Lindsey is principal flutist of the West Virginia Symphony Orchestra, adjunct lecturer at West Virginia State University and Marietta College, and solo flutist of the new music ensemble What Is Noise. She is a founding member of the Leviathan Trio (flute, cello, and piano), flute quartet PANdemonium4, and Chrysalis, a singing flutist and singing pianist duo, showcasing her training as a classical mezzo-soprano. A student of Walfrid Kujala and Robert Langevin, Lindsey received degrees from the Manhattan School of Music, Northwestern University, and Duquesne University.

According to the Los Angeles Times, composer and performer Eve Beglarian “is a humane, idealistic rebel and a musical sensualist.” A 2017 winner of the Alpert Award in the Arts for her “prolific, engaging and surprising body of work,” she has also been awarded the 2015 Robert Rauschenberg Prize from the Foundation for Contemporary Arts for her “innovation, risk-taking, and experimentation.”
Beglarian’s current projects include a collaboration with writer/performer Karen Kandel about women in Vicksburg from the Civil War to the present, a piece about the controversial Balthus painting Thérèse Dreaming for vocalist Lucy Dhegrae, and a duo for uilleann pipes and organ that was premiered by Renée Louprette and Ivan Goff at Disney Hall as part of the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s 100th anniversary celebrations. Since 2001, she has been creating A Book of Days, “a grand and gradually manifesting work in progress…an eclectic and wide-open series of enticements.” (Los Angeles Times)
In 2009, “Ms. Beglarian kayaked and bicycled the length of the Mississippi River [and] has translated her findings into music of sophisticated rusticity… [Her] new Americana song cycle captures those swift currents as vividly as Mark Twain did. The works waft gracefully on her handsome folk croon and varied folk instrumentation as mysterious as their inspiration.” (New York Times)
Beglarian’s chamber, choral, and orchestral music has been commissioned and widely performed by the Los Angeles Master Chorale, the American Composers Orchestra, the Bang on a Can All-Stars, the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, the California EAR Unit, the Orchestra of St. Luke’s, Sequitur, loadbang, the Guidonian Hand, Newspeak, the Ekmeles Vocal Ensemble and individual performers including Maya Beiser, Sarah Cahill, Lauren Flanigan, Marya Martin, and Mary Rowell.
Highlights of Beglarian’s work in music theater includes music for Mabou Mines’ Obie-winning Dollhouse, Animal Magnetism, Ecco Porco, Choephorai, and Shalom Shanghai, all directed by Lee Breuer; Forgiveness, a collaboration with Chen Shi-Zheng and Noh master Akira Matsui; and the China National Beijing Opera Theater’s production of The Bacchae, also directed by Chen Shi-Zheng.
She has collaborated with choreographers including Ann Carlson, Robert LaFosse, Victoria Marks, Susan Marshall, David Neumann, Take Ueyama, and Megan Williams, and with visual and video artists including Cory Arcangel, Anne Bray, Vittoria Chierici, Barbara Hammer, Kevork Mourad, Shirin Neshat, Matt Petty, Bradley Wester, and Judson Wright.
Recordings of Eve’s music are available on ECM, Koch, New World, Canteloupe, Naxos, Kill Rock Stars, CDBaby, and Bandcamp.
