Biography

Hi!  I’m Marybeth and I am a multiple woodwind instrumentalist. In a musically demanding world, woodwind doubling has allowed me to embrace an ever-changing, versatile and exciting career.   I welcome anything from jazz, pop, and rock genres to classical solo repertoire on saxophone, clarinet, and flute.

After graduating from Kutztown University of Pennsylvania under the direction of Dr. Kevin Kjos and Dr. Jeremy Justeson, I was fortunate to train under Broadway woodwind doublers  Allen Won and Adam Kolker.  Dreams proved true when I had the invaluable experience of studying with legendary LA studio recording artist Dan Higgins, who has played on over  400 major motion picture soundtracks.

I have worked closely with Cirque Productions,  and further diversified my skill set by adapting onstage movements and acting.  The ability to include these unique qualities have given me the opportunity to provide  audiences with exciting performances across the globe.  Recently returning from Europe, I performed on the critically acclaimed Norwegian EPIC,  which included performances with the Blue Man Group Band.

Performance Venues have included national tours at the Nokia Theatre in LA, to wind ensembles at Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center in NYC.

Currently, I am the  house woodwind player at the American Music Theatre, a celebrity concert venue located in beautiful Lancaster Pennsylvania.
