Flute And Organ Concert At Nativity Episcopal Church May 21

Thursday, May 4, 2017

Nativity Episcopal Church presents Rebecca Davis playing works for flute, piccolo and organ with organist Kristopher Schwinn on Sunday, May 21, 10:30 a.m. during the worship service.

Works include those by Mozart and Donjon, a piccolo sonata by Vivaldi and Krebs’s Fantasia for Flute and Organ.  Each work provides a new chance to contrast the orchestral flute with the organ’s eight flute ranks in different combinations.  

This performance is part of Nativity’s monthly Rising Artists series that features Chattanooga’s young musicians playing works for solo instruments and organ. Nativity also presents a Mini-Concert series with organist and music director Kristopher Schwinn. 

Rebecca Davis, 21, a junior dual History Education and Music major, is Principal Flute of the SAU Symphony Orchestra and studies with Kristen Holritz, Principal Flute of the Chattanooga Symphony and Opera.  Rebecca began playing the piano at age six and flute at age 10.  Upon graduation next year, she plans to teach secondary history and music appreciation before pursuing a graduate degree in history.  Artistically, her primary interest is music of the late Romantic and 20th Century.  Rebecca plans to remain an active musician throughout her life whether or not she is able to directly integrate music into her future work as a historian.
