Biography

Dr. Lisa Bost-Sandberg is a flutist, composer, and improviser deeply committed to contemporary music as well as its rich roots in the classical repertoire. In demand as a soloist and chamber musician, she has performed across the United States and Europe, including National Flute Association conventions, new music festivals (SEAMUS, EMM, Pixilerations, Spark, and SCI), and guest appearances at universities. She is the flutist of the InterSpheres Trio, which toured Hungary in 2014, as well as principal flute of the Bismarck-Mandan Symphony Orchestra, with which she will be a featured concerto soloist in spring of 2017. She has recorded on the Albany, GIA, and North Texas Jazz labels.

A dynamic and impactful teacher, Bost-Sandberg has taught masterclasses, presented lecture-recitals, and led workshops at numerous institutions. She is the Instructor of Flute at the University of North Dakota, teaches composition at the University of Mary, and is a flute instructor at the International Music Camp. Her previous teaching engagements include the University of North Texas, the University of Texas at Dallas, Clarke College, and the Great Neck Arts Center.

She frequently has the honor of premiering pieces and actively commissions new works with a particular interest in music for alto flute. Her compositions have been selected for performance at conferences of the National Flute Association, World Saxophone Congress, North American Saxophone Alliance, Society of Composers Inc., and Iowa Composers Forum. Most recently, her piece, Glint for solo tenor trombone, was selected as the winner of the 2016 American Trombone Workshop Composition Competition. She is currently serving as chair of the National Flute Association New Music Advisory Committee.

A Montana native, Bost-Sandberg received her doctorate in flute performance with a related field in composition from the University of North Texas as a recipient of the prestigious Masters and Doctoral Fellowship.
