ASCAP award winning flutist and composer Hadar Noiberg is pushing the boundaries of what is means to be a gay, female musician and band leader in today’s ever-changing world. From classical, jazz, Brazilian choro, and Middle Eastern music, Hadar’s eclectic musical background and experience has led her to create her own style in which she fuses all of her influences seamlessly. She has been touring internationally with her exceptional trio since 2010, playing in the U.S., Canada, Brazil, Europe, Taiwan, and Israel. She is about to release her third album as a band leader. Open Fields derives from Hadar’s Israeli roots, mixed with her worldwide influences, to create her own innovative style and melodic instrumental pieces.
