I met the Grammy winning flutist---Rhonda Larson with great anticipation in August 2003 at The National Flute Convention in Las Vegas. Larson's got an incredible sound and an awesome technique, but she has this spiritual quality in her music that really drew me to her playing. Rhonda played for years with the Paul Winter Consort and then left to take her own path. Nestor Torres introduced me to her during the convention, but I was a fan long before I met her---and she's as sweet as her sound. She gave me permission to post some of her music on the LNMC to my delight. Check out her website for sheet music and other cool stuff.
Download "Movin' On," is a solo flute piece that I've spent many hours working on. (Mac users--click on the download button and the music will play.)
"Larson journeyed to South Africa as a musical ambassador for the United States to perform for the Parliament of the World’s Religions, sharing the stage with such luminaries as Nelson Mandela and the Dalai Lama.
