Flute Day Concert

The Final Concert for Flute Day at Mesa State College is open to the public and will premiere a new quartet commissioned by Ruth A. Maurer, a member of the Western Colorado Flute Choir.

“Contra Songs” was composed by Catherine McMichael and has three movements: “Work Song,” “Love Song” and “Play Song.”

Maurer will play the contrabass flute in the quartet, Chris Potter (University of Colorado in Denver), the bass flute; Kristi Ballif (Mesa State College), the alto flute; and Becky Weidman-Winter (Western State College of Colorado), the C flute.

The winners from the day’s student competitions also will be featured at the concert, which will be at 4 p.m. in the Recital Hall in the college’s Moss Performing Arts Center.

Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and $5 for students and children. 248-1604.

If you think you know what a flute sounds like, think again, and listen to Rhonda Larson play the flute.

The Grammy Award winning musician plays a number of different kinds of flutes, such as ethnic flutes and crystal flutes. Larson has played around the world and the music she creates can be hauntingly sweet and Celtic, classical or a combination of musical styles.

Larson will perform in Grand Junction and teach as part of Flute Day at Mesa State College.

Larson’s concert “One Woman, A World of Music” will be at 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 23, in the Recital Hall in Moss Performing Arts Center.

Tickets cost $15 for adults, $10 for seniors and $5 for students and children.

On Saturday, April 24, Larson will teach two master classes as part of Flute Day. Flute Day, with competitions, workshops and concerts, costs $25 for adults and $15 for students.
