Powell player Dr. Tammy Evans Yonce, Assistant Professor of Music at South Dakota State University, recently gave a TEDx talk about the current state of classical music. In her presentation, Dr. Yonce illustrated three major points through discussion and performance:
- New classical music is being written, performed, and enjoyed by people every day
- Collaboration can happen globally
- The flute can be reinvented
Dreams Grow Like Slow Ice was premiered by Dr. Yonce at the 2013 National Flute Association Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana.
