A Presentation of World Musical Styles of the Western Boehm Flute
Long prior to planning my senior recital I mentioned to my flute professor, who would become my mentor for the Senior Honors Project, that I was interested in the music of other cultures. She mentioned the term ‘ethnomusicology’ to me, but at the time I wasn’t familiar with that field. This became the central point upon which I built my project. My goal was to introduce to the audience music that did not meet their expectations of Western flute repertoire, and to challenge their preconceptions about flute music.
