Artist Biography

Flutist Teddie Hwang is fascinated by the timbre and vocal qualities of the baroque traverso. Based in Germany, she collaborates with a variety of ensembles, playing repertoire ranging from 17th century airs de cour to 19th century symphonies.

She has given workshops on historical performance at institutions such as the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, the School of Music at the University of Victoria BC, the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance at the University of Limerick, Tunghai University in Taiwan, and the Escuela Superior de Música(UNAM) in Mexico City.

Teddie studied traverso with Wilbert Hazelzet and received her Master's degree in Historical Flute Performance from the Koninklijk Conservatorium Netherlands. She holds a Bachelor's degree in Music and Germanic Studies from Indiana University USA, where she studied modern fute with Kathryn Lukas and graduated with high distinction. She is a winner of the Baroque Flute Artist Competition held by the National Flute Association of America, and has also adjudicated for its competitions.

In addition to the fute, Teddie is also a photographer specializing in portraiture for musicians. She creates each image like a musical composition with a specifc structure, emotion, and style. The challenge of expressing the essence of music and of musicians through a visual medium is a central concept in her work. Teddie studied photography with the award-winning photojournalist David Bathgate, in addition to specialized focus on black-and-white photography with Memphis Barbree. She has participated in group exhibitions in the Frankurt area and also in Alsace, France. A member of the International Dark Sky Association, she combines her musical performances with her works in landscape astrophotography to bring awareness of our natural night sky, a common heritage which connects us all.
