Principal Flute Kelly Zimba Lukić spoke with radio host Kathleen Kajioka about her solo turn in Nielsen's Flute Concerto in “Beethoven's Fourth” Feb 26 & 27 on The New Classical FM.
“It showcases so many different elements that the flute can do,” Kelly said. “You have really delicate, soft moments, but then you have some extreme loud, technical, fast ranges that the flute can play and so it’s a really good showcase for the instrument.”
Kelly talks about the excitement of returning to the concert hall and (re)planning three weddings with her husband over the prolonged pandemic (the last one worked out!).
