Statement of Interest

I have enjoyed becoming involved with the IDRS over the past few years! I have been a member of the IDRS since high school, but then when finances were tight during and after college, my membership dropped. Only recently has my financial situation allowed for me to afford the luxuries such as association memberships. It is my passion to be able to make IDRS events and membership accessible to the young oboists through growing our sponsorship program at the regional level. Being a board member would allow me to take responsibility in progressing this initiative. One of my students in Nairobi, Africa applied for the conference scholarship this summer. How awesome it would be to meet them in person! IDRS truly brings people together and makes a differences in equitable ways, and I am excited to grow our regional community. Even if I do not get elected to the board, I am stoked to attend our new double reed events in the region! Happy to serve in any needed capacity!

Brief Biography

Dr. Lindsay Flowers is the Assistant Professor of Oboe at the University of Wisconsin-Madison Mead Witter School of Music where she is a member of the Wingra Wind Quintet and guides student-generated community engagement projects. She received a Doctor of Music degree from Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music under the tutelage of Linda Strommen and Roger Roe. Her background in athletics distinguishes her pedagogical approach in her emphasis on performance visualization, disciplined commitment, and supportive teamwork.

Lindsay is an Oboist and English Hornist with the Madison Symphony Orchestra and Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra. She previously was a member of the Milwaukee Ballet Orchestra, New Mexico Philharmonic, Quad Cities Symphony Orchestra, and Civic Orchestra of Chicago. Lindsay was a founding member of the Arundo Donax Reed Quintet, Bronze Medal Winners of the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition and recorded a duo album with Dr. Andrew Parker to be released in 2023. She has performed with the Milwaukee, Chicago, San Francisco, Indianapolis, Utah, and Nashville Symphony Orchestras and during recent summers with the Santa Fe Opera, Grant Park, Midsummer’s, Lakes Area, Apollo, Bach Dancing and Dynamite, Lake George, Castleton, Aspen, and Banff Music Festivals.

In addition to performing and teaching, Lindsay is recognized for her maintenance and repair of oboe and English horn gouging machines, particularly those designed by Ferrillo, Graf, Kunibert, and Gilbert. Lindsay has curated gouger clinics for students and professionals to share her knowledge in this specialty and will be presenting on the topic at Midwest Musical Imports and the International Double Reed Society Conference 2024.
