She enjoys performing throughout the Chicagoland area as a freelance artist. In addition, she adjudicates for state solo and ensemble contests and the Sherwood Conservatory Festival of Flutes.

Maryann Flock

Maryann Flock is energizing the Chicagoland area as a versatile musician, but her endeavors have spanned the United States and Europe. Flock served as the conductor and music director of the prestigious Fox Valley Philharmonic Orchestra and guided its youth program, the Fox Valley Academy of Music Performance. Flock has commanded various other ensembles including the Suburban Youth Symphony Orchestra, ensembles at Moraine Valley Community College, Illinois State University, and Benedictine University. While at Benedictine, her ensembles were selected to perform for dignitaries such as President George Bush and wife Barbara Bush, Mikhail Gorbachev, Colin Powell, Madeleine Albright and Julie Andrews.

Additionally, Flock is the founding director of the New Horizons Band DuPage, now in its 23rd season. New Horizons’ ensembles have presented and participated in the National Association for Music Education (NAfME) in Illinois and Ohio. Flock’s clinics and workshops for the Illinois State Music Teachers Association have been constructive in advancing the teaching and learning of older-adults on any instrument at all skill levels. Active as a performer, Flock cantors at St. Scholastica Parish in Woodridge, plays oboe at Moraine Valley, and performs as a pianist with the New Horizons Jazz Band. Flock holds degrees from Saint Mary’s College in South Bend, Indiana and from Illinois State University.
