Cecilia Piehl Price, piccolo and flute specialist, received her BM degree from the Universidad Nacional de Cuyo in Mendoza, Argentina, followed by a two-year fellowship for piccolo specialization. She later earned the MM and DMA Degrees in Music from The University of Alabama. For her DMA Degree, she wrote an annotated bibliography of Argentinean Solo Flute Music, thus beginning her interest in promoting the flute music of South America.

Previously, she held positions as piccoloist and assistant principal flutist with the Orquesta Sinfonica Nacional de Cuyo in Argentina, piccoloist with the Tuscaloosa Symphony Orchestra in Alabama, and principal flute with the Ludwig Symphony Orchestra in Atlanta. She appeared as guest soloist with the National Symphony Orchestra of Niteroi (Brazil), National Symphony Orchestra (Chile), Orquesta Sinfonica Nacional de Cuyo (Argentina), Orquesta de Cámara (Ecuador), and Tulepo Symphony Orchestra (USA).

In the recent years, Dr. Price presented her workshop on Circular Breathing at the Mid-South Flute Festival, Wisconsin Flute Festival, at the International Flute Festival (Ecuador), International Flute Seminar (Colombia), and independent workshops (Argentina). She also performed and offered a tribute program to her Argentine/Swedish mentor Lars Nilsson at the 2013 NFA Flute Convention, and offered a tribute program to her American flute professor, Sheryl Cohen (at the Mid-South Flute Festival held in the University of Alabama 2015).

Being a member of a 3-generation music family, Price's chamber music experience started in her early years and continues to the present, taking her to varied destinations in Argentina, Uruguay, Georgia (formerly of the USSR), and USA. Since 2014 she has been invited as faculty to the International Flute Festival (Quito, Ecuador) and International Flute Seminar (Bogotá, Colombia). She toured Argentina for the third time in December 2016 with a program of Latin Solo Flute Music.

Dr. Price is a member of the Flute Choir of Atlanta, board member at the Atlanta Flute Club, teaches Flute and Chamber Music at Kennesaw State University, and has a private studio.
