Samantha Levreault graduated from Mount Holyoke College with a B.A. in Music, and Environmental Studies. After Mount Holyoke College, Samantha became the full-time Administrative Assistant at the Northampton Community Music Center, in Northampton, MA.
In addition to administrative work at NCMC, Samantha also is the Ensemble Manager for the Victory Players, a Contemporary New Music Ensemble based out of Holyoke Mass, and supported by MiFA.
Full-time arts administrator by day, and flutist by night, Samantha rehearses and performs around the Pioneer Valley in various chamber groups, orchestras, flute ensembles, special events, and solo recitals.
In 2017, Samantha was awarded first place in American Protégé's International Woodwinds and Brass Competition, and performed at Weill Recital Hall in New York City, at Carnegie Hall, in 2018. She participated in the New England Conservatory's Metropolitan Flute Orchestra in July of 2018, and will perform again with the MET Flute Orchestra in July of 2019.
Samantha also teaches flute around Western Massachusetts. She teaches all ages and enjoys working with beginner flutists who are just starting out their musical journey. Many of Samantha's students are high school flutists competing in MMEA's Districts and All-state competitions. Her students have been accepted into the Junior, Senior, and All-state Festivals. Some of her students have gone on to be the first chairs of the local Springfield Symphony Youth Orchestra and the Boston Youth Philharmonic. Not all of Samantha's students are school age people, though. One of Samantha's favorite teaching positions is with the Pioneer Valley New Horizons Band, a beginner band for seniors.
