Danielle Boudrot is currently principal flute with The Lexington Symphony and the Lexington Symphony Chamber Players. She has been a featured soloist with the LS on several occasions, most recently performing the Mozart Flute and Harp Concerto with LS principal harpist Barbara Poeschl-Edrich in June 2011. Danielle received her Bachelor of Music degree from the Oberlin Conservatory of Music as a student of Robert Willoughby. She is also a visual artist specializing in unique portraits and in capturing the beauty of landscapes. As Danielle states:
it is with this artistic foundation that I have followed my other passions ~ photography, art, interior design and architecture…as the author of “a thoughtful eye”, I’m able to explore the visual world in ways that balance my life of music…the raw emotion of music married with the tangible beauty of art is a perfect union for my self expression.
