Abstract

In 1952, Boston Symphony director Charles Munch hired flutist Doriot Anthony Dwyer making her the first woman to play in a principal chair in one of the top five symphony orchestras in the United States. The purpose of this monograph is to document Doriot Anthony Dwyer's studies and career prior to her milestone appointment with the Boston Symphony. A chapter on her teaching method includes observations from the Flute Workshop at the Boston University Tanglewood Institute and selected observations from former students of Dwyer's.
