Krisztina Dér: flute/light
Thursday, March 29, 7:30 p.m.
Hailed by The Washington Post as a musician with “a clean, full-bodied tone and fleet fingers,” flutist and UMBC alumna Krisztina Dér (’12) has focused on the integration of flute music and lighting art, leading her to commission works by composers Stuart Saunders Smith, Michael S. Rothkopf, and others. Come explore visual-sonic energy where flute and lighting design meet to create a unique, innovative performance experience!
Her program will feature:

- Kyle Rowan — Komorebi
- Jacob Thiede — And everything in-between
- an additional work to be announced
