Join us as the Rye Public Library welcomes local flute ensemble Kamala Sound for a musical celebration of the season. Kick off your Holiday observation with a live musical event at the Library. Kamala Sound will play an assortment of world music with a Holiday flair. Gather by the fireplace and share in a special seasonal event with your neighbors.
The Kamala Sound Flute Ensemble was founded in 2012 and is led by flutist, Ellen Rondina, of Eliot, ME. The ensemble currently has six additional active members from the Maine and NH seacoast. Kibbie Straw of Fremont, NH, Sherry Rega of York, ME, Roseanna Drysdale of Durham, NH, Laurel Crawford of Exeter, NH, Karen Smith of Portsmouth, NH, and Colleen Rosenthal of Stratham, NH.
Music is part of our wellness and bringing music to our community is a gift and a responsibility. The ensemble provides an opportunity for adult flutists to get together and rehearse and perform a wide variety of repertoire for an array of audiences and venues. The ensemble is made up of a number of instruments from the flute family; including piccolo, C flute, Alto flute, and Bass flute, and many standard pop, jazz, and classical tunes have been arranged for this instrumentation.
Since its inception, The Kamala Sound Flute Ensemble has performed at many local events and as an outreach arm of the Portsmouth Symphony. They have supported community events including performances at the Edgewood Center Nursing Home in Portsmouth, and educational outreach events at New Franklin Elementary School in Portsmouth, NH and Barrington Elementary School (Arts Day).
The dynamic and fun sounds of this ensemble are a wonderful way to ring in the season!
