Featured Musician

Dr. Krisztina Dér – Second Flute

She has placed first in the Flute Society of Washington’s 2009 Collegiate Competition, been a featured soloist with orchestras, and performed at the 2014 Rosen-Schaffel, 2015 RAFA, and 2017 Myrna Brown Artist Competitions. A champion of intermedia, her research 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. Her teachers include Tadeu Coelho, János Bálint, Lisa Cella, and Alice Kogan Weinreb. For more information, please visit: https://krisztinader.com.
