“powerhouse…” – The Washington Post
Nationally acclaimed, Grammy-nominated, New York-based flutist and composer Allison Loggins-Hull will make her Wichita debut as featured guest artist for the annual FluteShox Day event, Sunday, April 3, 2022 at Wiedemann Hall on the campus of Wichita State University (WSU). Loggins-Hull will present a recital at 1:30pm for flute and electronics in Wiedemann Hall and offer a masterclass for collegiate students at 3:15pm. Recital tickets from $6 -12 are available at wichita.universitytickets.com or at the door (free for WSU students). To attend the masterclass, register for FluteShox Day. More information about the event is available at carmenlemoine.com.
“I’m absolutely thrilled to bring Allison to WSU and Wichita,” said Dr. Carmen A. Lemoine, assistant professor of flute, chair of the School of Music’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee and a co-founder of the Kansas Flute Society. “She is a performer of the highest caliber. Not only is she growing our audiences by expanding the idea of what the flute can do as an instrument, but she is also a role model for students in the field of music, particularly students of color. The classical music industry lacks diversity in many ways and I hope her visit inspires others to take action on this important challenge. You definitely don’t want to miss her recital!”
