I would love to help make your cocktail hour, wedding or birthday party memorable. As an enthusiastic chamber musician, I will be able to provide all varieties of chamber groups for your event. From solo to larger ensembles, I have contacts with many highly skilled musicians in the Southern California area. Many popular combinations for weddings are flute and harp, flute and cello, or flute and oboe. I also have plenty of musical selections to choose from if you're looking for ideas. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
Duo Flautas Frescas was founded by flutists Julia Barnett and Alina Windell, with the intent of commissioning, performing, and discovering music for two flutes and piano. Their first commission is from flutist and composer Valerie Coleman, to be premiered at the 2018 National Flute Association Convention in Orlando, FL. Upcoming performances include recitals in Los Angeles, San Diego, Minneapolis, Auburn (AL) and Ft. Wayne (IN). Duo Flautas Frescas’ performance videos can be viewed on their website or YouTube channel. Dr. Barnett and Dr. Windell have been playing together for 10 years, after meeting as graduate students at the University of Colorado at Boulder.
