Biography: Calista Richlen

Calista Richlen is a flutist originally from Mt. Juliet, Tennessee. Ms. Richlen received her BA in Music Performance at Tennessee Technological University where she studied with Dr. Mary Matthews and Dr. Roger Martin. Currently, she studies at Longy Conservatory in Cambridge, Massachusetts where she studies with Sergio Pallottelli.

Calista Richlen performed in the Bryan Symphony Orchestra for four years as Flute 2, and has been Principal Flute in TnTech’s University Orchestra, Wind Ensemble, Concert Band, and Symphonic Band. She was also active in ensembles such as Tntech’s Flute Choir, Wind Quintets, Flute Quartets, and more. Some of her achievements include winning the Derryberry Concerto Competition with John Corigliano’s Pied Piper Fantasy in 2020, performing Valerie Coleman’s Concerto for Flute Choir, Goin’ Uptown, as soloist, and has performed across Tennessee and through the Greater Boston Area at various conventions and masterclasses. In addition to her frequent performances, Ms. Richlen teaches students from beginners to advanced. She teaches privately, does flute coaching, band camps, and masterclasses, and has been doing so for 5 years.

She also serves her community in other ways. In March of 2020, Calista Richlen started an Instrument Donation fundraiser in response to a devastating tornado. She collected, cleaned, repaired, and gave out instruments to musicians who lost theirs so that these musicians could continue what they love most.
