KALAMAZOO--Grammy Award-winning flutist Rhonda Larson and her band, Ventus, will visit Western Michigan University for a single performance at 8:15 p.m. Friday, Jan. 15. The concert will take place at the University's Dalton Center Recital Hall.
Rhonda Larson and Ventus merge the soulful elements of sacred, Celtic, jazz, classical, folk and ethnic music. Ventus, Latin for "wind," expresses the essence of Larson's vision and approach to music: "without label or genre boundaries, with inherent musical qualities of inspiration that celebrate the human spirit." Larson leads the group with her gold flute and a variety of ethnic flutes from around the world.
The evening of Jan. 15, Rhonda Larson and Ventus will be joined on stage by Tim Ray on keyboards, Chris Rosser on guitar and ethnic stringed instruments, Eliot Wadopian on bass, and Kalamazoo percussionist Carolyn Koebel and River Guerguerian on exotic hand percussion.
