Growing up in Montana, Grisé has spent much of her life working, playing and teaching in the Northwest. After four years as a flute instructor at Idaho State University, she and her husband accepted full assistantships in the doctoral program at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Va. She also holds a Master of Music degree from Oklahoma State University and a Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Montana.

“I played in a lot of galleries when I was in college,” she says. “We did art openings every other weekend. Really, any place can be a performance venue, from concerts at Island Park or at bars. Any place can be good depending on what you want to do with it. Everything about the Plains is conducive to making beautiful music.”
