Pamela Pecko Smith: Bio

Flutist, vocalist, and music educator Pamela Pecko Smith is a native of the Philadelphia area where she earned a Bachelor of Music with Honours at the University of the Arts, followed by intensive graduate studies at the Franz Liszt Music Academy in Budapest, Hungary.

A professional flutist, Pam performs within an eclectic range of ensembles. Most notably she plays with her chamber group The Lodore Ensemble, and is a member of the Notting Hill Orchestra for Film Music with whom she appears in a dual role as flutist and vocal soloist.  As a session musician Pam has recorded for several UK-based bands.

Pam's vocal influences draw from Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Janis Joplin, and Joni Mitchell, among others.  She sings regularly with big bands in London, and performs as a vocalist with an emphasis on jazz standards and the American Songbook.  

As a music educator Pam enjoys working with performing ensembles both instrumental and vocal, and has served on music faculties in private and international schools in Hungary, Portugal, the US, England, Kenya, Turkey, and Poland. 

In recent years Pam’s varied performances have led her to established London venues for chamber music, to jazz clubs, to UK music festivals, as well as to festivals further afield such as Montreux Jazz.

Pam is married to British jazz musician Malcolm Earle-Smith, and currently resides in London, England.
