Flutist Susan Greenberg enjoys a versatile career as soloist, chamber musician, symphony player, and recording artist. The Los Angeles Times has described her playing as “brilliant,” “elegant” and "sublime” and has lauded her “panache.” As a member of the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra from 1975-2011, she was a frequent soloist on both flute and piccolo, premiering a concerto for piccolo by Bruce Broughton and performing a concerto written for her by Gernot Wolfgang. Previously, Greenberg appeared as guest soloist with the San Francisco and Oakland Symphonies, the Santa Monica Symphony, the Napa Valley Symphony, and at the Hollywood Bowl, and often performs at LACMA and the South Bay Chamber Music Series. She has also performed with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, L.A. Opera, New York City Opera, American Ballet Theater, and the Joffrey Ballet. Greenberg has received the “Most Valuable Player” award on the flute from the National Association of Recording Arts and Sciences, and has recorded for over 500 motion pictures as well as countless episodes of The Simpsons. She is the flute professor at Pepperdine University and has also taught at California Institute of the Arts and Occidental College. She received both her B.A., cum laude, and her M.A. from UCLA. Greenberg is the Co-Artistic Director of Chamber Music Palisades, now celebrating its fifteenth season.
Allison Allport has most recently performed in the Los Angeles Opera’s ongoing production of Wagner’s Ring Cycle and recorded with the band Weezer. Allport has numerous recording credits to her name, and can be heard on the soundtracks to The Spiderwick Chronicles, Cars, and National Treasure II: Book of Secrets, and Randy Newman’s album Harps and Angels. Allport has performed with the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, Pasadena Symphony and Long Beach Symphony, among others. As a special event harpist, she is sought after for many high-profile events, performing at high profile functions including a luncheon for Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh and for Merv Griffin’s funeral. Allport has received many honors for her music including awards from Pi Kappa Lambda, the Pasadena Fine Arts Club, Sigma Alpha Iota, and the American Harp Society. To Allport, teaching music is just as exciting and important as performing. She received her Doctorate of Musical Arts in harp performance from the USC Thornton School of Music, and was a student instructor at the University of Southern California. She also maintains an ever-growing private studio, and teaches on the faculty of the Idyllwild Arts Summer Program.
