Carol Wincenc

Carol Wincenc is an artist that needs no introduction. She is an iconic flutist and her name is synonymous with graceful and powerful musicianship. In addition to her decades of accomplishments, awards, and accolades, Ms. Wincenc has released a number of recordings that are revered as the authority on execution and artistry. Her natural talent and other’s recognition of her gifts launched her from a young flutist in her hometown of Buffalo to an emerging star fresh from her studies in Italy. She studied at Oberlin, Manhattan School of Music, and Juilliard. Quickly after her graduation, Ms. Wincenc secured the Principal Flute position with the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, won the Naumburg Foundation Solo Flute Competition, and established herself as a sought-after soloist. She passes down her wealth of knowledge and wisdom to her students and it excites her to see them reach accomplishments of their own. Before her recital and masterclass at the Flute Center of New York, Ms. Wincenc revealed what it was like building a career in a male-dominated industry and what morsels of advice she hopes to pass down to the next generation.
