Flutist Concludes Faculty Recital Series Monday
November 15, 2013 — The University of Wyoming Department of Music’s Faculty Recital Series concludes with a guest flutist Monday, Nov. 18, at 5 p.m. in the Buchanan Center for the Performing Arts concert hall. The event is free and open to the public.
Claudia Anderson is internationally renowned for her interpretation of contemporary music. Anderson went to Italy on a Fulbright scholarship and remained for several years to play principal flute in the Orchestra del Teatro Massimo in Palermo. Since her return to the U.S., she has toured many states as a recitalist, and as guest artist and clinician for state and regional flute festivals.
From early experience with the language of new music and opera, Anderson developed elements of drama and a creative use of performance space. She has collaborated with cellists, oboists and guitarists, and performs with Jill Felber, professor and chair at the University of California, in the flute duo ZAWA.
She has taught at the University of Northern Iowa, Ithaca College, the University of California at Santa Barbara and Grinnell College in Grinnell, Iowa. Her workshop, entitled "Taking the Stage," incorporates the use of body language, self-image and creative staging into a comprehensive stage presence.
Her performance will be followed by undergraduates Tamara Deichert, Emily Davies and Wendi Power.
