Althea specializes in Baroque and Renaissance recorder performance.  She thrives on live performances. In her own words; “I love to see people’s reactions while I play.  This is why I memorize everything – to see stoic faces and frowns turn to serene smiles.”  Her unique approach to performance allows Althea to gauge the audience’s reactions and customize each performance. Althea works out of Boston, MA, as a soloist, session musician, and Consort player.  Reach out to Althea here.
