Committed to the performance of new music, she has performed dozens of premieres throughout her career and also performed at The Boston Conservatory's New Music Festival in 2014. Leia has worked closely with many young composers including including Felipe Pinto d'Aguiar Montt, Craig Davis Pinson, Ethan T. Parcell, and the composer collective CanvaSounds; additionally, she has played for Joan Tower and Louis Andriessen. Leia has performed at a number of venues across the country ranging from Carnegie Hall and Chicago Symphony Center with the Garfield High School Orchestra to the Lilypad in Cambridge, MA on the Acoustic Uproar Concert Series. Leia received her Bachelor of Music from The Boston Conservatory in 2014 as a student of Sarah Brady; she has continued her studies with Cynthia Meyers. 

Through Your Throat: New Music for Flute is a program of new works for the unique instrumentation of solo flute and spoken text. It is presented by Boston-based flutist Leia Slosberg in conjunction with the Simon Fraser University School for the Contemporary Arts and MFA student Ben Wylie.

The concert features four pieces by young composers from Boston, Vancouver, and Chicago, commissioned by Slosberg specifically for this unique combination. Alongside these works will be two recent pieces, also written for Slosberg, by Boston based composers Evan Raczynski and Ethan Parcell as well as the seminal flute solo "Sori" by Isang Yun. This will mark the Vancouver premiere for both the flutist and most of the pieces on the program. Slosberg is currently touring this program through Chicago, Vancouver, Seattle, and Boston.
