In 2006, Eve Friedman became the first person ever awarded the Doctor of Music degree in Baroque Flute from Indiana University's renowned Early Music Institute, where she won the 2001 Baroque Orchestra Concerto Competition. In addition to historical flutes, her work at IU included music history and modern flute, and her doctoral research is soon to be published by the European publisher Prima la musica. Currently, Dr. Friedman serves on the National Flute Association's Historical Flutes Committee. She received her Master of Music degree from Boston University, where she was a student of Doriot Anthony Dwyer, retired principal flutist of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. At Ms. Dwyer's invitation, Friedman also studied at the Tanglewood Institute.
As a performer, she is sought after by both contemporary and historical ensembles. She has recently performed with The Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia, The Opera Company of Philadelphia, Tafelmusik (Toronto), American Bach Soloists (San Francisco), the Washington Bach Consort, and Tempesta di Mare, and was a judge in a National Flute Association competition. She has also performed in master classes with James Galway, Julius Baker, Leone Buyse, Barthold Kuijken, and Sandra Miller. In 2004, Friedman was invited to perform at the National Flute Association convention in Nashville, where she was a finalist in the Baroque Artist Competition. Of a recent performance, The Washington Post commented, "a particularly fine solo was contributed by Eve Friedman on flauto traverso in the aria 'Seele, deine Spezereien.'" She has a contemporary flute and piano duo with her husband, and fellow Rowan faculty member, Roberto Pace: www.halcyonduo.com.
