Flutist Robert Stallman won the George W. Chadwick Medal from the New England Conservatory of Music and received a Koussevitsky Fellowship and the C.D. Jackson Prize at Tanglewood. As a Fulbright Scholar, he studied in Paris with Jean-Pierre Rampal and since then has developed an international reputation as performer, master teacher, editor and arranger who has done much to expand the flute repertoire.
One of the first artists to receive a Solo Recitalist Award from the National Endowment for the Arts, Stallman has given acclaimed recitals at New York's Carnegie and Alice Tully Halls and other major venues here and abroad. In 1977 he founded the critically acclaimed Marblehead Summer Music Festival, and created special occasions there in a unique chamber music series for 20 years.
