Andrea LaRose

Composer and
Flutist

Back in July 2009, Andrea La Rose was magically whisked off to Erlangen, Germany to corrupt the youth of the world as a middle school band director at the Franconian International School. Before that, she was intimately involved with Anti-Social Music, thingNY, baj, Lone Wolf Tribe, and Mohair Timewarp. People in publications from Chamber Music America to Dusted had lovely things to say about her fluting and composing prowess. Organizations such as the American Music Center and Meet the Composer generously provided funding for her musical endeavors. Musical knowledge was bestowed on her by such luminaries as Robert Dick, Marianne Gedigian, Dan Riley, Kyle Gann, Bernadette Speach, Tania Leon, David Olan, Larry Thomas Bell, and Karen Tarlow. These wonderful institutions certified such knowledge: City University of New York (well, almost...), The Boston Conservatory, University of Massachusetts, and the San Francisco Orff Course. When she is not making music in some fashion, she is most likely quaffing beer and whipping up culinary magic in her kitchen.
