Linda has performed chamber music of all eras. From the early Baroque on recorder, through contemporary music on flute, piccolo and alto flute. Some of the past and current chamber groups she has been associated with are the Syracuse Society for New Music, Musicians of Maalwyck and Buffalo Chamber Players. She has also been a frequent recitalist and concerto soloist.
When not playing the flute she can usually be found outdoors walking, bicycling, cross country skiing, gardening or simply sipping coffee on her porch. Her two spoiled rotten cats are grateful to her for the tuna fish.
