Leslie Margolis - Associate Principal Flute


Leslie Seid Margolis began her flute studies in elementary school.  While obtaining a degree in comparative literature at Princeton University, she studied with Jayn Rosenfeld Siegel, and while in law school at Stanford, she had the great fortune to study with Frances Blaisdell.  After a hiatus during which work, children, and other pressing aspects of life intervened, Leslie returned to the flute and began studies with Laurie Sokoloff, piccoloist with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, with whom she continues to study.  Leslie has performed with local musical organizations, was a founding member of the Baltimore klezmer band Klezzazz, has performed in local lunchtime recitals at Old St. Paul's and Emmanuel Episcopal churches, and has participated in the Baltimore Symphony Academy.  When not playing or thinking about music, Leslie is a managing attorney focusing on special education issues at the Maryland Disability Law Center, a nonprofit, public interest law organization that provides legal services to people with disabilities.
