As founder and Artistic Director of the critically acclaimed Chameleon Arts Ensemble of Boston, Ms. Boldin’s innovative programming and sensibility have elicited unanimous acclaimed from press and audiences alike, and won the Ensemble 2007 and 2009 Chamber Music America/ASCAP Awards for Adventurous Programming. The Boston Globe praised her for “discerning ears and cosmopolitan tastes,” hailed "planning a good chamber music program is an art unto itself, and few in town have mastered it as persuasively,” and noted "during intermission, concertgoers could be overheard marveling at the program's breadth and wondering why other groups aren't as adventurous. Chameleon makes daring seem easy."
Ms. Boldin holds a BM from the Peabody Conservatory, where she received the Alice & Leary Taylor Prize in Performance, and a Graduate Diploma from the New England Conservatory, where she studied with Paula Robison. She is the flute instructor and chamber music coach at the Reveille! Music Festival for the Vermont Youth Orchestra. Ms. Boldin can be heard on Argo and Albany Records.
