About Wendy Wilhelmi, flute

Wendy Wilhelmi is active as a teacher and performer throughout the Pacific Northwest, frequently playing with some of the region's finest ensembles, including the Seattle Symphony, Seattle Opera, Northwest Sinfonietta and Pacific Northwest Ballet Orchestra.

For two seasons Wendy served as assistant principal flute and piccolo of the Vancouver (BC) Symphony and prior to that engagement was a regular member of the Spokane Symphony for ten years. She is also active in the studio recording industry and can be heard playing flute, piccolo and alto flute on numerous commercial and movie soundtracks including Eloise at the Plaza, About Schmidt, Die Hard 3 and Air Bud.

In addition to her orchestral engagements, Wendy has been involved in a variety of chamber music ventures, most recently participating in the 2009 Seattle Chamber Music Festival winter season and the 2009 Orcas Island Chamber Music Festival.

Ms. Wilhelmi received her Bachelor of Music in music history magna cum laude from the University of Washington, and her Masters of Music in flute performance from Northwestern University where she studied with Walfrid Kujala. She was principal flute of the Civic Orchestra of Chicago and co-principal flute of the Philarmonica de Queretaro (Mexico) prior to returning to her native Northwest.
