      Get to know Carol Shansky

      Flutist Carol Shansky has been described by critics as having “smooth, legato flute tones…performed with skill and understanding” (Rockland Journal-News) and “…produces a lovely tone with a large palette of colors and timbres, her breath control allows her to spin out endless phrases without losing pitch or quality” (Edith Eisler, New York Concert Review). She has performed at the Weill Recital Hall (Carnegie Recital Hall), Tanglewood Little Theatre, and the Bruno Walter Auditorium (Lincoln Center), British Arts Center and conventions and conferences of the National Flute Association, College Music Society, American Single Reed Conference, International Clarinet Association, Music by Women Festival, NACWPI, Hispanic Heritage Festival, and International Alliance of Women Musicians. She has won awards from the Pearl Amster Concerto Competition, Concerts Atlantique, and Artists International. Carol performs on all flutes (C, piccolo, alto, and bass) and she performs with Synergy 78 (flutes and clarinets) and is principal flute of the Bergen (NJ) Philharmonic Orchestra. Carol has been interviewed and performed live on New York Public Radio and North Jersey Public Radio. Dr. Shansky received her DMA and MM from Boston University where she studied under Leone Buyse, and her BM from Ithaca College. Other teachers and coaches include Frances Blaisdell, Samuel Baron, and Tom Nyfenger. She is on the faculty at Bergen Community College, Post University, and several private music studios.
