Mary Jo is an active performer throughout the region and Assistant Professor of Flute and Theory at UNCW. She plays regularly with the UNCW Faculty Woodwind Quintet and other faculty chamber groups. As a winner of the 2006 National Flute Association Performers Competition, Dr. White played in a concert of Newly Published Music at the National Flute Convention in Pittsburgh.
When asked why she enjoys playing with the Wilmington Symphony, White says, “Because we do challenging classical repertoire, the conductor is excellent, and I enjoy collaborating with talented musicians in our community.” Her most memorable experience with the orchestra is performing the Nielsen Flute Concerto with the orchestra a few years back.
In addition to her busy schedule as a professional flutist, Mary Jo enjoys include playing piano and guitar, cooking, and beach walking. And, she loves her little sheltie.
