Beatriz Macias

Celebrated for the "voice-like beauty" of her playing, Mexican-American flutist and soprano Beatriz Macias is emerging as one of the most versatile figures in the scene of classical music. Macias made her solo debut at the age of eighteen at the prestigious D.A.R. Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C. Shortly after, she was named a Young Performing Artist by the Yamaha Corporation of America. Macias' career has taken her around the world. She has held the Principal Flute position in the Luxembourg Chamber Orchestra and has appeared with numerous orchestras including the Frankfurt Radio Orchestra, Rotterdam Philharmonic, Dutch National Ballet & Opera Orchestra, Luxembourg Philharmonic, Royal Opera House ‘La Monnaie', Royal Flemish Philharmonic, Tampere Philharmonic, Finnish National Opera, Birmingham Royal Ballet Orchestra, Qatar Philharmonic and the Houston Symphony, to name a few. As a singer, Macias is currently on tour with her Spanish opera program "Lo Mejor de la Zarzuela!". Macias is the founder and Artistic Director of the Tampere Flute Fest in Finland.
