Flutist, composer, and improviser Andrea La Rose makes cute songs, difficult chamber works, and weird noises. Andrea composes actively with ensembles Anti-Social Music and thingNY and has also been musically involved with A/B Duo, Lone Wolf Tribe, and Wild Rumpus. Back when she was under 40, NPR named her as composer you should know. Print and online publications from Chamber Music America, to New Music Connoisseur, to Dusted have said lovely things about her fluting and composing prowess. She’s been heard on prestigious subway platforms in Boston and New York, and on cd with Anti-Social Music, World/Inferno Friendship Society, Dirk Stromberg, Mohair Timewarp, and His Name Is Alive. An avid free-improviser, Andrea has performed with vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Paul Pinto (NYC), guitarist Nicola Hein (Köln), bassist Jonathan Robinson (Berlin), violinist Tom Swafford (NYC), sound artist John Jannone (NYC), and in a trio with pianist Bernadette Speach and guitarist Jeffrey Schanzer (NYC). She recently corrupted the youth of the world as a Music Teacher at the Franconian International School in Erlangen, Germany. Presently, she is a professional mom and stay-at-home musician in Prague, where she has been exploring Klezmer with the Pražská Jidiš Kapela and frantically composing during a certain toddler’s naps.
