Zoe Sorrell presents My Own Route,
a program of flute music by and about nasty women, off her forthcoming album of the same name. The program spans the gamut of classical music history, from Baroque works performed on historically accurate flutes to world premieres by some of today's greatest composers.
The concert also includes Sorrell's Syrinx Project, a multidisciplinary commissioning series that tells the stories of mythological women through contemporary lenses. The Syrinx Project has been described as "a modern classic [that] brings audiences to the art in a way that is fresh and relevant" (Melissa Snoza, Fifth House Ensemble) and combines the artist's flute playing with original choreography and text.
Zoe Sorrell is one of the leading contemporary flutists of today. She is the founder, flutist, and artistic director of Pittsburgh-based contemporary music ensemble NAT 28 and co-director of the Pittsburgh Festival of New Music. Sorrell currently teaches flute, piano, and music entrepreneurship at Westminster College and around the Pittsburgh area.
