"I am very honored and excited to have been selected for this special performance," Doyle said. "I will collaborate with a pianist in San Diego, and have the opportunity to perform newly published music."

The National Flute Association Convention Performers Competition is open to all professional flutists. Winners are selected by audition and perform on a program devoted to music that has been published within the past year. The NFA convention will be held August 11-14, 2016 in San Diego, Calif.

As an educator, she leads an engaged and vital collegiate flute studio comprised of students from throughout the United States. Tracy earned her Doctor of Musical Arts degree in flute performance from Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, and her Bachelor of Music and Master of Music degrees in music education from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.
