November 17, 2013 - AIR DYNAMICS!
Diane Gold Toulson, Cathy Herrera, Susan Kroeker, Smith Toulson, flutists, with guest Anne Sullivan, harpist

Air Dynamics! is comprised of members of the Nittany Valley Symphony flute section Diane Gold Toulson, Cathy Herrera and Susan Kroeker, with the addition of Maestro Smith Toulson. In 2011, Cathy, Diane and Susan joined forces with harpist Anne Sullivan at the Shade Mountain Concert and Sunday Afternoons at the Library Concert Series to celebrate the works of two of history's most famous flutists and composers, brothers Franz and Karl Doppler. Inspired by their joyful experience performing chamber music together, and the multitude of compositions available for flute ensembles, they invited clarinetist Smith Toulson, who also plays the flute, to join them, and formed Air Dynamics!, State College's first professional flute ensemble, performing works for flute duo, flute trio, and flute quartet. Air Dynamics! has been slated for performances of music ranging from Baroque and Brazilian to Bozza throughout the fall, at the Nittany Valley Symphony Luncheon with the Maestro October 3, The Palmer Museum October 16, The PSU Flute Day October 20, Sunday Afternoons at the Library in Bellefonte November 17, and at State College First Night, New Year's Eve.
