On May 21st at 2 p.m., Cedar Tree flutes will be playing flute trios from the Baroque, Classical, and late Romantic, early 20th century periods of music at the Fitzwilliam Community Church, Rte. 119 W, Fitzwilliam, NH. Composers will include Quantz, Boismortier, Mozart, Tcherepnin, Zempleni, Damase and Gary Schocker. You will feel as if you're in the the courts of France from its late Baroque period (Boismortier) all the way through time to Oriental gardens of the early 1920s (Tcherepinin).
Flutists Carmen Buckley Reynolds, Beth Anne West and Angel Monroe will make up the trio of Cedar Tree Flutes, a group founded under the Cedar tree in the backyard of Carmen Buckley Reynolds’ home. They are a group of two, three, four and more flutes that include other instruments also, depending on the needs of the music they are playing.
Carmen Buckley Reynolds has a degree in Flute Performance from the University of Maine at Orono and has been playing and teaching flute and recorder throughout the New England for over 20 years.
Beth Anne West (Elizabeth) has a degree in Flute Performance from Oberlin Conservatory. She has been playing and teaching for over 40 years, the last dozen in the Monadnock region.
Angelica Monroe is pursuing her Flute Performance Degree, along with her Chemistry Degree, at Keene State College. She is a sought-after flutist and piccolo player who tours during the summer with The National Community Band under Director Emeritus Col. John Bourgeois, Director Emeritus of The US Marine Band. We are pleased to have her as our guest flutist for this concert.
There will also be a reception with lots of good food downstairs after the concert so you can fraternize with the performers. We are asking $10 admittance to support the church and our music program.
