Grammy Award-winning flutist Rhonda Larson was born and raised in the mountains of Montana. This Big Sky Country in the Wild West helped form her nature-loving, free spirited trail-blazing artistry. She entered the national music scene by winning first prize in the National Flute Association’s Young Artist Competition at the age of 22, including a Carnegie Hall debut. Shortly thereafter, she joined the Paul Winter Consort, initiating her journey into a rich palette of music from around the world.

Composing much of her own music, Larson’s visionary force showcases her gold flute and an array of ethnic flutes in a new and refreshing light. She has expanded the sonic capabilities of her instrument with entirely new techniques, most notably her inventive simultaneous flute-and-voice unison. Larson tours world-wide, and has a discography of over 20 commercial recordings, including Distant Mirrors and Free as a Bird. Her latest CD release, Live from China, features her band Ventus from a recent 25-city tour throughout China. Most of the selections are Larson’s original World Fusion compositions, including arrangements of traditional Celtic, Armenian, Romanian, and Chinese melodies. She owns and operates her publishing company, Wood Nymph Music, producing her sheet music from graphic design to distribution.

Fee based parking is available at the Edward Gary Street Parking Garage located next to the Performing Arts Center.
