Linda Woody lives in West Linn, Oregon and graduated in 2013 from Marylhurst University with a Bachelor of Arts in Music and a Bachelor of Music in Composition. She studied music composition with Dr. Bob Priest and Dr. John Paul. She enjoys writing for a variety of ensembles, including handbell choir, choral groups, piano trio, middle school band and mixed instrumental groups. Her works have been performed by members of the Oregon Chamber Players, Big Horn Brass, the Delphinium String Quartet, Raphael Spiro String Quartet, the Free Marz String Trio, the Classical Beauties Piano Trio, the Marylhurst Chorale, Lake Carillon and Vesper Bells handbell choirs, and by members of Third Angle and the Oregon and Vancouver Symphonies. Linda Woody is the artistic director for Going Boldly in Lake Oswego, a concert of modern chamber music presented each spring at Lake Oswego United Methodist Church, fund in part by the Clackamas County Alliance for the Arts. She has volunteered in the music program in the West Linn- Wilsonville School District and has served on the board of Music and Arts Partners. When Linda is not composing music or at the bench of Fernando, her grand piano, you will likely find her with her family and two dogs — experimenting in the kitchen or enjoying any number of outdoor pursuits requiring specialized footwear.
