Dr. Christie Beard WHAT DOES WORLD MUSIC MEAN?
TUE, JUNE 13th - 11AM PST
Described by Flute Focus as "having shattered any notions that the piccolo might be lacking in deep, expressive powers,"
Christine Erlander Beard enjoys an active international career as a soloist, chamber artist and teacher with regular
engagements throughout North America, South America and Europe. Applauded for her interesting and diverse recital programming
and “warm lyricism” (BFS journal, Pan), Christie strives to showcase expressive music written for the flute and piccolo as well
as promoting new and original works with a focus on American composers. Founder and Artistic Director of the International Piccolo Symposium,
Dr. Beard is the Regents-Foundation Professor of Flute at the University of Nebraska at Omaha, a Sankyo Artist, and serves the
National Flute Association as a contributing editor to the NFA's journal, The Flutist Quarterly, and as a member of the NFA’s Piccolo Committee.
