Amelia Libbey is pursuing a masters degree in flute performance at the New England Conservatory of Music as a student of Cynthia Meyers, piccoloist of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. She graduated from the Eastman School of Music with a Bachelor of Music degree in flute performance and a minor in Art History. Amelia’s primary teachers include Cynthia Meyers, Bonita Boyd, Anne Harrow, and Judith Mendenhall. Amelia has won first prize in the Long Island Flute Club High School Competition, honorable mention in the New York Flute Club Young Musicians Contest, and was a finalist in the New York Chamber Players Young Artist Competition. In 2023, she was one of four finalists in the James Pappoutsakis Flute Competition. Amelia has spent summers at the Sewanee Summer Music Festival and the
Oyster Bay Music Festival. This summer, Amelia was invited to join the Boston Philharmonic Youth Orchestra on their 2023 tour to South Africa, where the group performed 7 concerts in 7 cities over a two week period.
Equally passionate about early childhood music education, Amelia spent this past spring traveling to Boston public schools through NEC’s Musical Storytelling Fellowship, in which she created a program that engaged children through classical music and storytelling. Starting in the fall, Amelia will join the North End Music and Performing Arts Center as a Band Sectional Teacher, where she looks forward to continuing to develop her teaching and music education skills.
The North End Music & Performing Arts Center (NEMPAC) is a 501(c)(3) community music school and professional performing arts center founded in 2001.
