Chattanooga Times Free Press - ChattanoogaNow - - VOICES - STAFF RE­PORT

Dr. Ginny Win­ston Tutton, an alumna of the Univer­sity of Ten­nessee at Chat­tanooga, will re­turn to cam­pus for a flute con­cert on Sun­day, Sept. 9, in Cadek Recital Hall on Oak Street.

The Holm­berg Pro­fes­sor of Amer­i­can Mu­sic and the UTC Depart­ment of Per­form­ing Arts are pre­sent­ing her free per­for­mance at 3 p.m.

Tutton, a 2008 grad­u­ate of UTC, cre­ates pro­grams that en­gage au­di­ences by pair­ing mu­sic with art­work in im­ages and sound.

Tutton teaches stu­dents ages 9 to 99 as in­struc­tor of flute at Cen­tre Col­lege and in pri­vate in­struc­tion. She is a fre­quent pre­sen­ter at flute and mu­sic con­fer­ences where she de­liv­ers in­no­va­tive lec­tures on flute ped­a­gogy in­clud­ing top­ics such as “Flute FUN­da­men­tals: Im­prov­ing Begin­ner Tech­nique Through Games,” “The Flute Stu­dio of the Fu­ture: In­cor­po­rat­ing STEM Sub­jects Into the Pri­vate Cur­ricu­lum” and “The Ian An­der­son Method: How Rock Mu­sic Can In­form Clas­si­cal Ped­a­gogy.”

Tutton’s pro­gram on Sun­day will in­clude the world pre­miere of “Cir­cus of Dreams,” a new work for solo flute based on the novel “Night Cir­cus” by Erin Mor­gen­stern. She will also per­form a work by Mart­inu in­spired by bird calls in New Eng­land, a Hun­gar­ian Pas­toral and Fan­tasy by Doppler and a flute duet by Bach, per­formed with Dr. Ronda Ford of the UTC fac­ulty.

Park­ing is free on cam­pus on Sun­day, and there is a park­ing garage be­hind Cadek Hall.
