Photo of Carla and StudentsFlautist of distinction - Mrs. Nancy Horowitz’ School 24 students were treated to an afternoon of artistry by the absolutely awesome flutist Carla Auld. "Miss Carla" presented a master class for flute students, coaching them on how to improve breathing and articulation, and even add colors to enhance performance. Then she played her flute for all the School 24 Concert Band students. Her program includes mixed music from Renaissance times all the way up to the 29th Century, with fascinating anecdotes about how the flute fits into the history of music. See the thank you notes the students made and paintings Ms. Auld inspired at a local garden program as well>>




Here are more precious cards and letters to Ms. Auld after in-school prerformances and classes.
