Goodman is a student of New York Philharmonic principal flutist Robert Langevin and Walfrid Kujala, former principal piccolo of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. She received her masters degree from Northwestern University, her bachelors degree summa cum laude from Duquesne University, and a professional studies diploma from the Manhattan School of Music's orchestral performance program.
Lindsey is known for her "generous warmth of tone and a fluid virtuosity" (Charleston Gazette), as well as her "impressive artistry" (Tribune-Review), "agility, and emotion" (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette). Renowned for "brilliant", "bravura performances" (Tribune-Review) "played with conviction" (New York Times), "flair and emotion" (Gazette), Ms. Goodman is in high demand as a soloist, chamber collaborator, orchestral musician, recording artist, teacher, and clinician.
An avid performer of new music, "flutist Lindsey Goodman appears to know no fear in tackling the most demanding music" (Tribune-Review). A strong advocate for emerging composers and electroacoustic, interdisciplinary, or multimedia works, Lindsey is an active commissioner of new pieces, having given over one-hundred world premieres, including thirty-six solo and chamber compositions written for her. Goodman is in her sixteenth season as solo flutist of the Pittsburgh New Music Ensemble, a group with whom she has recorded two CDs, made two international tours, been featured eleven times as soloist, and has served on the board of directors.
As an orchestral musician, Ms. Goodman holds the Martha Gaines Wehrle Chair in her eleventh season as principal flutist of the West Virginia Symphony Orchestra, and can be heard on both of that orchestra's CD releases.
