Isabel Lopez-Roldan has taken her passion for music across international borders. Living in Belgium at the age of 8, she began taking flute lessons and performed in the local community band. At the age of 10, she moved to Australia and began taking piano lessons. At the end of high school, Isabel was awarded the DePauw School of Music Scholarship to study overseas in Indiana, USA. She completed the first year of her Bachelor of Music in the States.
Since her return to Australia, she has graduated with a Bachelor of Music in Advanced Flute Performance at the Queensland Conservatorium. She has also been awarded her Licentiate Diploma for piano. In her post-graduate studies, she graduated with a Master of Secondary Teaching with Distinction at Griffith University.
Most recently, Isabel completed a successful audition for the 2020 Flute Symposium in Adelaide, led by one of the world's best-known flautists, Michael Cox. Some past highlights include her appointment as Principal flautist at the Australian Youth Orchestra's National Music Camp and her performance of Aida with Opera Australia . Isabel has also been honoured to perform as Principal flautist of the Queensland Youth Symphony, Queensland Conservatorium Symphony Orchestra, Queensland Conservatorium Wind Orchestra and Queensland Conservatorium Opera Orchestra.
Through her international ventures, Isabel has become a highly diverse and flexible musician: performing premieres in orchestras, working as a conductor, accompanying choirs and teaching flute and piano in schools across Brisbane.
