She has risen to national prominence
as a versatile flutist who has performed with the symphony orchestras of
Chicago, St. Louis, Pittsburgh, Detroit, Buffalo and Kansas City, the Cleveland

Robinson teaches flute and coaches
chamber music at the Cleveland Institute of Music, Case Western Reserve
University and Ithaca College. She founded the Greater Cleveland Flute Society
and has commissioned, premiered and recorded many new solo and chamber works
for flute, piccolo and alto flute.
The symphony is directed by John
Whitney, who has led orchestras on three continents, including those in the
Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia and Venezuela. He has performed with or
conducted a host of platinum artists, including Luciano Pavarotti, Tony
Bennett, Ray Charles, Henry Mancini, Cab Calloway, Liberace and Doc Severinson.
