Lisette Kielson, Artistic Director

Recorder ~ Flute ~ Instruction ~ Performance

When asked her favorite: recorder or flute? teaching or performing? Lisette Kielson replies--all of the above! She adores the recorder and the flute equally. She approaches both teaching and performing with great passion. 

Lisette explores this duality further with L'Ensemble Portique--a marriage of recorder and flute; of baroque and contemporary music; of education and performance--and is deeply committed to sharing her love of music with students and audiences alike.
