Carla Auld continues to distinguish herself as both a performer and one of the foremost proponents of the flute in the world today. Constantly in demand as a concert artist and teacher, she has also been hailed for her work as a founder and artistic director of organizations specifically related to music and arts administration.
Born in New York and raised in New Jersey, Ms. Auld attended Temple University, having studied with Julius Baker, whom she credits with having helped her form the artistic perspective readily apparent in her approach to repertoire, performance, and interpretation, which continues to bring her accolades from critics and audiences alike.
She has also coached with such distinguished artists as Michael Parloff, Robert Dick, Bernard Goldberg, Gerardo Levy and Julius Baker.
Jerry Dubins of Fanfare Magazine describes Ms. Auld as “beguiling” with a “smooth balanced tone throughout the registers of her instrument,” as well as “marvelous breath control, and [a] technical command distinguishing all of her performances,” while Roger Hits of Highlight Hollywood has proclaimed her “absurdly talented, creating her own atmosphere with her ethereal flute work.”
Auld’s solo performances exist along a broad spectrum of both venues and collaborators, and include engagements with Sante Fe’s Flute Immersion, Orquesta Sinfónica Nacional of Mexico, the Verdi School of Music, Italy, the Saint Paul Festival of the Arts, and the Festival of Strings in Pompton Lakes, New Jersey. She has been invited to perform for numerous flute organizations throughout the United States of America.
Well-known for her interest in new music as well as the promotion of works by living composers, she has personally commissioned works from James Cohn and Allen Cohn, while also having had works written especially for her, including "Voyage to a New Land” for flute and orchestra by Steve Giammarino, recorded on the MSR label. Ms. Auld has also
commissioned works along with her flute colleagues as a member of the award-winning flute octet, UpTown Flutes. She was featured as both piccolo and flute performer on three of the ensemble’s CDs.
As Founder and Artistic Director of From Bach to Broadway, a classical music services company, Auld was responsible for giving audiences the opportunity to engage professional artists on demand for events, combining specific instrumentalists to accommodate the need for solo and chamber ensembles of both new and traditional works to audiences. She is also founder of two other chamber groups, the Auld flute and piano ensemble and the London Trio with cellist Lanny Paykin and violinist Gabriel Schaff.
Constantly in demand for her work as an advisor and adjudicator, Auld has served on the boards of both the New York Flute Club, and the New Jersey Flute Society, and has served as an international judge for the Magalif Flute Competition.
