Ainsley Land

Flutist Ainsley Land is a first-year doctoral student at Harvard Divinity School, where she studies American religious history and its intersections with environmentalism. She studied with Michel Debost at Oberlin College Conservatory of Music’s summer flute institute and played in the Denver Young Artists Orchestra throughout high school. She is the sole instrumental musician weekly involved in Old South Church’s Evening Worship, a service in the ancient Celtic tradition that weaves Gregorian chant and Appalachian folksong throughout a baptism renewal liturgy, centered around the font, in the candlelit gothic splendor of Old South’s Gordon Chapel.
