Flutist, composer, and improviser Andrea La Rose makes cute songs, difficult chamber works, and weird noises. She works actively with ensembles Anti-Social Music and thingNY and has also been musically involved with A/B Duo, Lone Wolf Tribe, Mohair Timewarp, 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. Presently a professional mom and stay-at-home musician in Prague, she formerly corrupted the youth of the world as a Music Teacher at the Franconian International School in Erlangen, Germany. Her music explores how people change roles over the course of a situation, spontaneously negotiating who is leading, who is following, or if there even needs to be leaders and followers at all. When it’s not about that, it’s about clapping.
