Adria Sternstein Foster

Kennedy Center Opera House Orchestra Principal Flutist, Adria Sternstein Foster has been praised by the Washington Post for her “molten phrasing” and tone of “sheer iridescence”.

As a member of the IBIS Chamber Music Society, Adria has performed chamber music for flute, harp and strings throughout the Washington, DC metropolitan area. She has been heard on NPR’s Front Row Washington and appears in the 2017 documentary film Samuel Barber: Absolute Beauty.

Recordings include Vivaldi’s flute concerto “Il Gardellino” on the disc IBIS x 2, and Iridescence, a CD of works for flute and harp with Kennedy Center Opera House Orchestra principal harpist Susan Robinson.

A native of New York City, Ms. Foster attended La Guardia High School of Music and the Arts and was a student of Bonnie Lichter at Juilliard’s Pre-College Division. She continued her education at Juilliard where she received both her bachelor’s and master’s degrees as a student of Julius Baker and Jeanne Baxtresser.

Adria is honored to collaborate on Volume 2 of the indispensable publication for flutists, “Orchestral Excerpts for Flute with Piano Accompaniment,” with her mentor Jeanne Baxtresser, former Principal Flutist of the New York Philharmonic.
