Biography

Of Bonita Boyd's Australian appearance, The Australian wrote: "Like Moiseiwitsch and Dame Myra Hess, Boyd's playing is informed by a sense of unhurried serenity whether in episodes of reflective nature or in more bravura passages. And this, allied to a superbly secure flute line, a wide tonal range and a sure sense of style resulted in interpretive magic." The combination of her artistry and dazzling virtuosity makes Bonita Boyd one of today's most exciting flutists.

Her extensive concert tours have taken her throughout the United States, South America, Latin America, Europe, the Far East, and Australia as soloist with orchestra, recitals, and master teacher. Her Recording of "Les Six" was honored by Stereo Review Magazine in its Record of the Year Awards and by High Fidelity Magazine in its Critics' Choice Column. Bonita's earlier career was marked by appointment as principal flutist of the Rochester Philharmonic and Chatauqua Symphony at age 21, as the youngest principal in a major United States orchestra, and by her appointment as Flute Professor at Eastman School of Music at age 25.

Most recently, Miss Boyd was featured flutist at the Toronto International Chamber Music Festival.
