Flutist Andrea LeBlanc’s performances have been described as “sweetly lyrical,” “excellent throughout,” and “effortlessly played” (Boston Musical Intelligencer, 2013, ’13, ‘12). Ms. LeBlanc is devoted to furthering the artistry and expression of the flute by performing on instruments original to or reproductions from the baroque, classical, and romantic eras. Her regular engagements in Boston include the Handel and Haydn Society, Boston Baroque, Grand Harmonie, and Cambridge Concentus. Ms. LeBlanc has also appeared with the Folger Consort in Washington, D.C. and in 2009 performed Bach’s St. Matthew Passion on Cambridge Concentus’ tour of Japan, under the direction of Joshua Rifkin.
She is the principal flutist of Arcadia Players and L’Academie, and performs chamber music of the late-classical and early-romantic periods with pianist David Hyun-Su Kim. She has worked with such conductors as Masaaki Suzuki, Harry Christophers, Joshua Rifkin, Ian Watson, and Simon Carrington. In 2012, Ms. LeBlanc became the first baroque artist to participate in Music at Eden’s Edge Emerging Artist program, and was invited to become a full member based on her exemplary participation. She has also performed at the Blue Hill Bach Festival in Maine, and has been an audience favorite at the Big Moose Bach Festival in Gorham, NH since its inception in 2010.
Ms. LeBlanc holds a B.Mus. with honors and distinction in performance from New England Conservatory and a M.Mus. from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, where she was a teaching assistant in flute and early music. She spent a year furthering her study of the traverso at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague (Netherlands). She has studied extensively with Christopher Krueger and Kate Clark.
