Flutist Rhonda Larson to present concert at TTU on Oct. 7

Grammy Award-winning flutist Rhonda Larson will perform at Tennessee Tech University’s Wattenbarger Auditorium of the Bryan Fine Arts Building at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 7.

Critics say Larson’s diversity, combined with her musical and technical wizardry, has begun a new generation for the flute as a leading voice in the music world.

She continues to be recognized as a visionary force creating a refreshing hybrid music for the flute, including her versatility on an array of ethnic flutes from around the world.

Larson has a discography of more than 19 commercial recordings from labels and distributors such as Windham Hill and American Gramaphone, among others.

She has also recorded a variety of flute music for two CBS television series, “Survivor” and “The Restaurant”, and she performed on the live CBS finale episode of “Survivor” from Madison Square Gardens, seen by more than 40 million viewers.

The New York Times described one concert as “a straightforward, positive musicality to what she did, and it cheered the listener.”

A Center Stage Event, the show is free and open to the public.
