The flute came into Rozalind’s life at the age of thirteen, after her grandmother read an article about how playing the flute helped asthmatics learn how to control their breathing better. In fact, it did.
Rozalind pursued a performance degree for flute at the University of Toronto, studying with Douglas Stewart. She then moved to Ottawa to pursue a Masters Degree in Flute Performance with Robert Cram. As Mystery Flute Girl, she has made spontaneous guest appearances with celebrated indie music artists including Yo La Tengo, Great Lake Swimmers, Constantines, Lou Barlow and many others. With a yen for traveling, she has acquired fans from the most surprising places in Canada and abroad, having become both a long-term resident at the Banff Centre and an Artist-In-Residence at The Atlantic Center for the Arts in Florida, studying with Robert Dick (NYU).
In 2009, Rozalind was invited to the prestigious Dawson City International Short Film Festival where she was an Artist-in-Residence, composing and performing original works in cooperation with Victoria filmmaker Scott Amos. Flexible and intuitive, she collaborates with filmmakers and artists of all sorts.
Rozalind is currently recording a new album in St. John’s, Newfoundland as she prepares for further tours across Canada and the rest of the world.
