Carrie Rose, a flutist and composer in the Washington, DC area, freelances with regional orchestras, grooves for folk dances, unfurls a luscious array of chamber music, and wails out avant-garde chamber music. At folk dances (English Country, Scottish Country, Contra, Waltz) Rose can be spotted as a dancer and as a musician who fuses long melodic lines, edgy crunchy effects, and innovative countermelodies, exploring grace and boisterous energy. On YouTube she posts flute and video concerts in nature with performances in streams, meadows, flower gardens and up in a tree, in the afternoon, at dawn, and in the moonlight.
