Santa Fe, New Mexico USA

Flutist Linda Marianiello has worked in many areas of flute playing as soloist, recording artist, chamber musician, principal and assistant principal flutist of symphony and opera orchestras, and as a member of several orchestras for Broadway musicals. Her interest in 18th-century music also led her to study and perform extensively on baroque flutes. She specializes in how to apply 18th-century performance practices to modern flute playing.

Linda has been a guest artist at major European festivals and on concert series throughout the United States. The National Flute Association has featured her in recitals, master classes, and discussion panels at their New York, Boston, Atlanta, Chicago, and Minneapolis conventions. She visited Guangzhou, China in 2002, where she taught and played in recital at the South China Conservatory of Music.

Linda Marianiello has recorded extensively for the Bavarian Radio in Munich, Germany. Her solo CD’s include: “Music for Flute and Piano" (Helicon, New York), “Dialogues: American Music for Flute and Organ" (Musicians Showcase Recordings, New York), and a Baroque Sampler for Swineshead Productions (Berkeley, CA). In fall 2008, MSR released "Consolations: Romantic Music for Flute and Piano." She released a new CD of European music for flute and organ in 2010.

As a teacher, Linda Marianiello has been on the faculty of several music schools and universities, while she has also maintained a private studio for 35 years. She has given master classes throughout the US, in Europe and China. For two summers she  taught at the Sherwood Conservatory of Music Summer Flute Institute in the Chicago Loop. With colleagues Susan Levitin and Bart Feller, she founded Santa Fe Flute Immersion in 2012. Linda enjoys long-distance teaching via the Internet. She loves the possibility of doing master teaching to and from any location and finds that, in most cases, it works very well for flute.

Linda Marianiello holds a B.A. with honors from Yale University and an M.A. from the City University of New York-Brooklyn College. Her teachers are Bernard Goldberg, Thomas Nyfenger, Julius Baker, Walfrid Kujala, as well as Peter Thalheimer, Sandra Miller, and Janet See for baroque flute.
