    Stacey Severn


    Stacey David Severn began playing with the Stratford Community Band as a sixth-grader in 1973 along with her father, Elliot, a charter member of the band’s trumpet section.  The band presented some amazing challenges for a young student of the flute.  “At first, I was just able to read along and play a note or two here or there.  By my second year with the band, I was playing almost all of the music.  The experience pulled my music reading skills and level of playing way ahead of my peers.”

    Stacey went on to participate in the Bridgeport Youth Symphony where she performed as flute soloist in Italy.  Additional performing groups included the Norwalk Youth Symphony, All-Connecticut Band, and the All-Eastern Band, under the direction of Frederick Fennell.  She majored in Music at Western CT State University, where she won the Silvermine Guild's Young Artist Competition, and graduated cum laude.  Her college career culminated in a trip to Norway, performing on piccolo with the New England Collegiate Band Association Wind Ensemble, the sole ensemble representing the United States at the first annual Conference of the World Association of Symphonic Bands and Ensembles. 

    After College, Stacey joined the Norwalk Symphony, gave many solo and chamber performances throughout Connecticut, attended a master class with James Galway, and taught flute privately in Norwalk. In addition to performing with the SCCB, Stacey serves as assistant principal flutist with the Connecticut Symphonic Winds and is member of the Charter Oak Flutes. She performs chamber concerts for the Monroe Arts Council, is a member of the Milford Folk Music Society, and is the former principal flutist and orchestra manager for the Troupers Light Opera Company.  Stacey is a Marketing Manager with British Telecom, and mother to a wonderful son who studies astronomy and plays the trumpet.   “It’s great to be back in the band after all these years, with my father, just how I started.   The enjoyment of music brings the group together, and keeps us all coming back!”
