BSO principal flutist Elizabeth Rowe joined the Boston Symphony Orchestra in 2004 and holds the Walter Piston Principal Flute Chair. In August 2023 she announced that the 2023-24 season — her 20th — will be her final season with the orchestra.

Rowe has been a featured soloist numerous times throughout her time with the BSO. She made her first appearance as a concert soloist with Mozart‘s Concerto for Flute No. 1, and went on to be featured in Ligeti’s Double Concerto for Flute and Oboe with conductor Christoph von Dohnányi and BSO principal oboe John Ferrillo; the American premiere of Elliott Carter’s Concerto for Flute; Mozart’s Concerto for Flute and Harp in C Major with BSO principal harpist Jessica Zhou,including a performance on tour with the orchestra in Tokyo.

She has performed Gabriela Lena Frank’s Illapa, Tone Poem for Flute and Orchestra; Frank Martin’s Concerto for Seven Winds, Timpani, Percussion, and String Orchestra; Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos nos. 2 and 5; and Leonard Bernstein’s Ḥalil, both in the BSO’s Opening Night all-Bernstein program under Andris Nelsons in September 2017 and at Tanglewood in July 2018 under Herbert Blomstedt.

As a member of the Boston Symphony Chamber Players, she can be heard in a wide variety of chamber works throughout the season at NEC’s Jordan Hall.

Rowe’s commitment to the next generation of musicians has been a pillar of her artistic life. Noted for her insightful teaching, in the early part of her career she attracted flute students from around the country for lessons and master classes. Rowe has worked with students at New England Conservatory, Tanglewood Music Center, New World Symphony, Peabody Conservatory of Music, and University of Maryland.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
