Casey Granofsky is an in-demand flutist in Toronto and Southern Ontario. Performances in the summer of 2019 see her performing classic works of the French repertory with the Toronto Concert Orchestra at Casa Loma’s Symphony in the Garden series in Toronto. Previous engagements include the Montreal Symphony, the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony, and the Guelph Symphony.
As a chamber musician Casey has had an opportunity to perform
works ranging from Bach and Telemann to world premiers. In recent years she has had the privilege of performing concerts at the Banff Centre, the Toronto Reference Library, the summer concert series at Mount Pleasant Cemetery in Toronto, and with the Ottawa New Music Creators.
In 2015 she completed her Masters degree at McGill University, where she studied with Montreal Symphony’s principal flute, Timothy Hutchins. In addition to her required studies, she worked on a project with the McGill Contemporary Music Ensemble where she performed the flute concerto Mémoriale (...explosante-fixe...originel) by Pierre Boulez, as well as Density 21.5 by Edgard Varèse. She had the privilege to perform major symphonic works as principal flute of the McGill Symphony and l’Orchestre symphonique de l’Agora, including Ravel’s Daphnis et Chloe and Debussy’s Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune.
Prior to attending McGill, Casey attended the University of Montreal, studying with Denis Bluteau, and completed both a Bachelor's degree and Artist Diploma at The Glenn Gould School where she studied with Dr. Kathleen Rudolph.
In addition to all of the incredible teachers and colleagues she's met during her studies and travels, none of it would have happened had she not caught the "bug" at a young age. She would be remiss to leave out her first flute teacher, Loyda Lastra, who created the musical foundation that Casey continues to build
upon to this day.
