Leslie Cullen has performed throughout the United States, including concerts at The Kennedy Center, Ravinia, The Kimmel Center, Avery Fischer Hall, Carnegie Recital Hall, Alice Tully Hall, and the Aspen Music Festival. Her performance focus is on small ensembles and chamber orchestras, working with a variety of groups such as the Paragon Ragtime Orchestra, the Mozarteum Orchestra of Salzburg, and numerous trios, quartets, and quintets.
A native of Oklahoma, she has also served as an Artist-In-Residence for the Oklahoma State Arts Council. Ms. Cullen first realized how much she loved working with students when she began teaching at the age of 15. She happily reports that she still enjoys it just as much 30 years later, and is grateful for all that she has learned from her students. In addition to her position at Bucknell, she is currently lecturer in Flute at Lycoming College.
