The Rochester Flute Association presents Rhonda Larson in Recital plus Two Masterclasses (April 20-21, 2012)

March 19, 2012


“…Once every generation there comes along a transformative force that breaks all the industry rules. Larson wields her instrument like a blow torch, breaking down our Victorian preconceptions of what the classical flute should be, how it should sound and where it should take us…This intensely gifted flutist needed little more than her native Montana charm to win the hearts of the packed house.” –Connecticut’s VOICES review
