UTC alumna returns for flute concert Sunday
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.
