Samantha L. chose tuba in sixth grade and never looked back. While touring with Seraph Brass and freelancing with various ensembles, Samantha has also earned recognition as a soloist. Her passion for solo performances was ignited when she won the Young Artist Solo Competition in New London, CT in 2012, resulting in a solo performance accompanied by the U.S. Coast Guard Band. Since then she has won the University of Connecticut Concerto Competition and placed second in the Eastern Connecticut Symphony Orchestra Instrumental Competition.
Samantha graduated with a MM from the Juilliard School and a BM from the University of Connecticut. She recently earned her DMA from Rutgers University and her doctoral research in 2021 led to an International Tuba Euphonium Conference presentation on high voices in tuba multiphonic repertoire and two commissions for unaccompanied tuba. Her principal teachers are Alan Baer and Gary Sienkiewicz.
