RFA Presents Christina Jennings

Flutist Christina Jennings is praised for virtuoso technique, rich tone, and command of a wide range of literature featuring works from Bach to Zwilich. The Houston press declared: "Jennings has got what it takes: a distinctive voice, charisma, and a pyrotechnic style that works magic on the ears."

Active as a concerto soloist, Ms Jennings has appeared with over fifty orchestras including the Utah and Houston Symphonies. In 2009 she premiered concertos written for her by Carter Pann and Laura Elise Schwendinger. The Washington Post descrived her performance of the Jonathan Leshnoff Concerto with the Fairfax Symphony as a "spirited, quicksilver performance."

In great demand as a teacher, Ms Jennings is Associate Professor of Flute at the University of Colorado Boulder, and on the summer faculties of Greenwood Music Camp and ARIA. She has also taught at Texas and Sarasota Music Festivals. In 2008 she founded The Panoramic Flutist Seminar with Leone Buyse in Boulder. Trained in the Dalcroze Eurhythmics method, Christina's teaching incorporates embodied movement.
