Flute Choir Showcase No 7

Desert Echoes Flute Project performed a wonderful program that included El Fuego de la Noche by Bob Freedman, Settimino by Vincenzo Sorrentino, the world premiere of the lovely four-movement Paths of Deeper Gold by Alexandra Molnar-Suhajda, and a transcription of Brahms’ Allegro Giocoso from Symphony No. 4, Op. 98, arranged by Shaul Ben-Meir.

The DEF Chamber Choir, a subset of Desert Echoes Flute Project, performed a program with two NFA premieres: Undae by Vincenzo Sorrentino and Divertimento by Vincenzo Palermo. Also on the program were Ian Clarke’s Within and the second movement of Benjamin Boone’s Victoria’s Secret Gift, entitled Celebration.
