Alice Teyssier, flute, Artistic Operations Associate / Co-Director, OpenICE

Flutist and soprano Alice Teyssier brings “something new, something fresh, but also something uncommonly beautiful” to her performances. She has appeared with the San Diego Symphony, the Palimpsest Ensemble, the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE) and is regularly featured on Los Angeles’ renowned Monday Evening Concerts series. A uniquely gifted advocate for new music, Alice has given residencies for composers and performers of new music at such universities as Harvard, Leeds, Huddersfield, Oberlin and SUNY- Buffalo.

She has premiered dozens of works and appeared at the Ojai, Mostly Mozart, June in Buffalo, and Huddersfield Contemporary Music festivals. Equally devoted to historically informed and technically sound performances of early music, she performs regularly with the Bach Collegium San Diego and the Pacific Bach Project and is a core member of the Musical Oratory. Born in Australia, Alice has lived in France, the United States and Germany and enjoys a rich performance schedule as a professional flutist as well as a singer.

She has earned degrees from the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, the Conservatoire de Strasbourg and is currently a candidate for Doctor of Musical Arts at UCSD, where she studies with the Grammy-winning soprano Susan Narucki.
