Frankly My Dears, Flutistry, and Friends
November 6 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Frankly My Dears is a woodwind quintet that was founded in 2020 by clarinetist and Winona musical institution, Dr. Frank Bures. He is joined by Heidi Bryant (flute), Kristi Krause (oboe), Pamela Lehmeier (bassoon), and Shawn Kennedy-Lee (French horn). In addition to being members of the Winona Municipal Band, each of these musicians performs with other ensembles around the region. They come together to explore the interesting variety of repertoire that has been scored for woodwind quintet and look forward to sharing their music with the community.
Flutistry is an outgrowth of a flute choir class started by Mandy Moburg in the fall of 2011 in Winona. The class brought together several experienced flutists who decided to make things official, so they became Flutistry. The membership has adjusted over the years, but the current group still includes three founding members: Janet Heukeshoven, Heidi Bryant, and Arlene Boll. More recently, Lisa Ramsey and Amanda Wenzel have joined the group. Over the past 10 years, they have performed for many types of events around Winona. Their repertoire ranges from Baroque to Jazz. For this concert, the program will feature works by female composers.
This concert will feature music in a variety of styles and showcase the talents of many of our local instrumentalists. The two groups will be joined by other wind players in smaller ensembles.
