Madeleine Folkerts joined the Great Falls Symphony and Chinook Winds in 2017 after completing degrees in performance and psychology / neuroscience at St. Olaf College.
In addition to her work in Great Falls, she is the Principal Horn of the Bozeman Symphony and frequently performs in other orchestras across the state.
She teaches horn at the University of Montana, as well as maintaining a private studio of students throughout Montana.
Madeleine has performed as a member of the Big Sky Festival Orchestra and the National Repertory Orchestra, as well as in other festival ensembles. She has toured nationally and internationally with the St. Olaf Band and Orchestra, soloing with both groups.
Originally from Port Orchard, WA, Madeleine enjoys being back in the mountains, taking advantage of everything Montana has to offer–on foot, bike, skis, and from the rock wall–as much as she can.
