MARY BRIGID ROMAN, Associate Professor of Harp, received the B.M. and M.M. degrees from the Eastman School of Music. During that time, she performed with the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra and other orchestras in New York State. Since joining the faculty of FSU in 1968, she has appeared frequently as a soloist and ensemble performer throughout the Southeast. Her special interest in chamber music for flute and harp led to a recording of Persichetti's Serenade for Flute and Harp, with Albert Tipton.

In 1988, with Bernard Phillips, Principal Flutist with the Houston Grand Opera, she formed Le Duo Roman/Phillips. Together they have performed in Europe, and the U.S. In 1990, they were invited to perform by Concerts Atlantique at the European International Festival in Geneva, Switzerland. Ms. Roman has been a frequent performer of New Music and has participated in the performances of American and world premieres.

Roman has served on the Board of Directors of the American Harp Society and has written articles for the American Harp Journal. During her tenure as principal harpist with various orchestras she has performed under such conductors as Dorati, Gould, Kachaturian, Shaw, and Stravinsky. Currently she is principal harpist with the Valdosta State Symphony Orchestra and the Tallahassee Symphony Orchestra.
