Emily Skala is principal flutist of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. During her career, she has held three principal positions, performed as guest principal in orchestras throughout the world, and appeared at top music festivals in Aspen, Edinburgh and Brazil. As a soloist, she has worked with internationally-renowned conductors including Marin Alsop, Juanjo Mena, Mario Venzago, and David Zinman. After being appointed principal flutist of the BSO in 1988, Ms. Skala became a faculty member of the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University in 1989. She has taught masterclasses at the National Orchestral Institute, the Eastman School of Music, Oberlin Conservatory and George Mason University; in Suanbo, South Korea; and for the National Flute Association's annual conventions.

As a soloist with the BSO, Ms. Skala has tackled the most demanding repertoire for the flute, including works by Bach, Corigliano, Rouse, and Takemitsu. She has performed on numerous recordings (including Grammy-nominated and Grammy-winning CDs) for the Decca, Telarc, Sony and Naxos labels. During her time with the BSO, Ms. Skala released a solo CD of Brahms and Schubert with Summit Records, which received much critical acclaim.
