Angela is the principal flutist (Julie Badger Endowed Chair) for the First Coast Wind Symphony and the founder and executive director of the First Coast Flute Choir, an ensemble consisting of community members that perform regularly in Northeast Florida. 

Angela Muller holds a Bachelor of Music Education from the University of Northern Colorado and a Master of Music with an emphasis in flute and conducting from the University of Denver. Her primary flute teachers were Michelle Batty-Stanley, Sylvia Greenfield, and Pamela Endsley.  Her conducting teachers include Dr. Joseph Martin, Dr. Lawrence Golan, Dr. Catherine Sailer, and Dr. Richard Mayne. Masterclasses and performances with Marco Granados, Eric Whitacre, Brian Balmages, Jack Stamp, and several others have inspired her to become a lifelong learner.

Marie Schwartz is a flutist with decades of experience in orchestral performance, chamber ensemble performance, private instruction/masterclasses, and composition. She is well versed in playing different flutes, though she specializes in the piccolo, and has collaborated with many composers to premiere many new works on both instruments. 

Marie is currently the Principal Flutist of Orchestra Delray and the Conductor and Principal Piccoloist of the South Florida Flute Orchestra. 

She has performed with internationally acclaimed musicians, including Sir James Galway and Chicago (the rock band), and has performed with the Boca Symphonia (including the inaugural and subsequent Boca Festival of the Arts performances) and the Palm Beach Symphony.

She has made numerous appearances at the FFA conventions, and in 2023, she performed her first composition, “Lanai Bird” for piccolo solo. As Principal Flutist and Co-founder of her NY woodwind quintet, 4 Winds & A Horn, Marie made lifetime alliances with composers, who wrote woodwind quintets and a flute concerto for her. She can be heard on the “Turn of the Century” CD with composer Jerry Rizzi, who was her first composer collaboration.

Marie’s extensive experience in both musical performance and marketing prior to living in Florida, including collaborating with composers, co-founding a woodwind quintet, creating a chamber concert series, a symphony orchestra, and a youth concerto competition, inspired her to become a co-founder of the South Florida Chamber Ensemble (SFCE) in 2011.

Marie follows her passion of extending classical music to students of all ages by maintaining an active international private studio. Her students and her children continue to claim prestigious achievements and performance opportunities in the musical world. 

Marie’s flute teachers include Mindy Kaufman, Andrew Lolya, Herbert Levy, and Gerri Brioso. Masterclasses and performances with Jean-Pierre Rampal and Sir James Galway have also inspired her.
