Pictured above are Austin Flute Choir members Danelle Sasser, Sally Grant, Penny Griffy, and Dana Prater. The quartet had the wonderful opportunity of helping the Austin Lyric Opera Co. celebrate its Silver (25th) Anniversary on Saturday, November 5th. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's famous opera, The Magic Flute, was performed that weekend as it had been one of the first operas produced in the ALO's infancy. Our flutists performed several selections from the opera itself plus other famous works by Mozart such as "The Marriage of Figaro," "Eine Kleine Nachtmusik," and "Divertimento." They were featured during the cocktail hour in the Kodosky Lounge of the Long Center.
