About Brynna Paros
As an active performer, Brynna has participated in masterclasses and festivals across the continent, including the 2019 Domaine Forget International Festival in Québec, Canada, where she performed for flutists Mario Caroli and Leone Buyse. She was also the winner of the annual University of Oregon Concerto and Aria Competition, performing Frank Martin’s Ballade with the University of Oregon Symphony Orchestra. In 2019, she was selected as a performer in the Masterclass Competition at the National Flute Association Convention in Salt Lake City.
Originally from a small town in rural Washington State, Brynna has a special passion for community engagement and music education. Alongside her peers she has given many recitals in local venues, including multiple performances for the Eugene Hotel, a retirement facility in Eugene, Oregon. As a part of a tour with the University of Oregon Wind Ensemble, Brynna organized and led masterclasses at various high schools across the state of Oregon, working with young students on the fundamentals of flute playing. It is one of her many goals to help foster a greater love and appreciation for music as an artform among her students, and within the larger community.
