Flute Ensemble Spring Concert

April 13, 2019 - 1:00pm
Rotunda
Free

Come to The University of Virginia's Flute Ensemble Spring Concert, Saturday, April 13 in the Rotunda at 1:00pm. In the true spirit of chamber music the ensemble will perform several of these works without conductor, in an effort to highlight the conversational qualities of playing music in an intimate chamber setting.

The UVA Flute Ensemble, directed by faculty member Kelly Sulick, is comprised of talented student musicians majoring in all areas of study at the University. 

The performance features a diverse roster of twentieth- and twenty-first century works written by American composers Nicole Chamberlain, Valerie Coleman, Jennifer Higdon, Katherine Hoover, Allison Loggins-Hull, and Judy Nishimura.

The UVA Flute Ensemble includes members Saikat Bera, Emily Buckley, Carolyn Graham, Samantha Knee, Bonnie Laingen, Heewon Lee, Helen Schmedtje, Jane She, Jessie Tosto, Julie Wang, and Melissa Wu. The group, directed by UVA faculty member Kelly Sulick, will also feature Peter Wellman on drum set.

The University of Virginia’s Rotunda was designed by Thomas Jefferson as the architectural and academic heart of the University’s community of scholars. He named the University’s original buildings the “Academical Village.” As the phrase suggests, the Academical Village is based on the Jeffersonian principle that learning is a lifelong process, and that interaction between faculty and students is vital to the pursuit of knowledge. Jefferson modeled the Rotunda after the Pantheon, a second-century temple in Rome. Construction began in 1822 and was completed in 1826, shortly after Jefferson’s death on July 4 of that year. Together with Monticello, the Academical Village is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site. 

Parking is on the street or in one of the many parking lots & garages on "the Corner" or in the Central Grounds Parking Garage.  The Charlottesville Free Trolly stops in front of the Rotunda on University Avenue.
