SVSU students showcased in flute recital

Four Saginaw Valley State University student flute musicians will take the stage in Founders Hall on Friday, Feb. 9 at 7:30 p.m. Under the direction of Townes Osborn Miller, an instructor of music at SVSU, they will showcase their talents through flute solos and duets.

Bethany Lutty, a music minor from Linden will kick off the recital by performing a flute solo with Wendy Chu, a piano accompanist at SVSU.

Holly Finch, a music education major from Brant, has been studying with Miller for three years. Although her instrument of study is the saxophone, Finch will demonstrate her abilities as a flutist at the recital in her solo with Amanda Stamper, a piano accompanist at SVSU.   

Josette Born, a music education major from Elkton, will showcase her flute talents in two solos and one duet at the recital. This marks Born's 11th year playing the flute and her second year working with Miller as her flute instructor. Born participates in the SVSU Flute Choir, Wind Ensemble, Concert Band, Marching Band, and Pep Band.

Kaitlyn Richard, a music education major from Center Line, will join Born on stage for a flute duet composed by Gary Shocker as well as performing a solo, accompanied by Chu, that will close out the night. Richard has worked with Miller for four years and has stayed active in SVSU's Concert Band, Flute Choir, and Wind Ensemble.

The recital is open to the public and is free of charge. For more information and a detailed list of music department events and performances, please visit
