concert flute & piccolo

 

 

 

When she was in first grade, a girl played her flute for Adrienne's Girl Scout troop. Adrienne knew right then and there that she wanted to play flute--she was absolutely smitten with the instrument and joined band as soon as she was able to. Adrienne has now been playing flute for just over 20 years and piccolo for over 18 years. She is also currently a member of The Little London Winds.

Adrienne grew up here in Colorado Springs, attending Widefield High School. During high school she was a member of many musical groups including Bates' Ensemble, the Young Concert Artists and the Colorado Springs Youth Symphony (CSYSA). With CSYSA she traveled to much of Europe, including Austria where the orchestra played the Mozarteum; Washington D.C. where they had the opportunity to perform on the Millennium Stage in the Kennedy Center and also to New Zealand and Australia with a performance in the Sydney Opera House. (You can hear Adrienne perform the famous William Tell Overture flute solo in the Sydney Opera House on YouTube--the solo starts at 4:43.)

Adrienne obtained her degree in Journalism from Colorado State University and since graduating, has worked for several news stations as well as Emmy Award-Winning Producer-Director Ginger Kathrens. Most recently she was the editor for award-winning feature-length documentary, GrowthBusters: Hooked on Growth.

Currently, Adrienne helps to take care of her 95-year-old grandmother while working on building up her custom scrapbooking business she started in 2012, Alice Scraps Wonderland. Adrienne is a creative soul whom enjoys scrapbooking, gardening, reading, writing and baking. Some of her other hobbies include swimming, yoga, astronomy and spending time with family.
