Opening the 2023-2024 USA Musical Arts Concert Series, flutist Dr. Andra Bohnet will present a faculty recital on Tuesday, September 5 at 7:30 p.m. in the Laidlaw Performing Arts Center Recital Hall. Collaborating with Dr. Bohnet will be USA faculty pianist Dr. Robert Holm.

With the exception of the Sonata by Robert Muczynski, a chestnut of the flute repertoire, all of the works on the program will be by female composers. Three are Alabama premieres – Ruth Gipps CoolRunning Water, op. 77  for bass flute and piano (1991) and two very recent works, Souvenirs de fleurs de Pervanche by Yuko Uébayashi (2023) for flute and piano, and Oxygen by Julia Wolfe (2022) for twelve flutes. The twelve flutists, some of whom will be doubling piccolo or alto flute, will include Mobile Symphony colleagues, USA alumni, USA current students, and other prominent flutists in the region.
