What to Expect
Sundance Flutes consists of two exceptional flutists, who, because of their young age, will generally cost less than professional musicians. Their duets are often complex and their musicianship and professionalism is beyond their years. In Sundance Flutes you will find great talent and with it, great responsibility.
Sundance Flutes is the musical duo of Emily Wimmer and Cassandra Goyer. Emily is a senior at Pendleton Heights High School, currently sitting first chair in the top band. She loves playing difficult solos and spends a lot of time running, as she participates in cross-country at her school. She is incredibly devoted to her instrument and spends more time playing than she does sleeping some days. Both girls love to make money the old-fashioned way - playing flutes in their local park with a hat sitting in front of them. Cassie is an avid horsewoman; she trained her own horse and loves to ride. In the fall of 2013, she will be a freshman at Southern Illinois University, studying Equine Science with a hope to go on to veterinary school. Previously, she was sitting first chair in the Pendleton Heights High School Wind Ensemble, Emily's current position. She plans to continue playing throughout college, for events and otherwise.
Sundance Flutes will provide one consultation appointment to discuss the nature of the event and the music to be played, one rehearsal if needed (i.e. rehearsal dinner), and the event. They will be happy to choose from their prepared repertoire of musical selections or adjust to something the individual customer wants; they will learn the music on their own and come ready to deliver a professional performance.
Additional Booking Notes
Sundance Flutes is a flexible group, able to play in any venue and provide nearly everything from the music to the stand if need be. The only thing that must be stipulated is that the instruments cannot be outdoors in the rain.
Sundance Flutes is able to adjust to (nearly) anything the customer would have, from movie themes to classical to jazz. If they do not have it, they will do their best to track it down.
Influences & Inspiration
Having both played in the same concert band under the same director with the same private lesson teacher, the members of Sundance Flutes have a shared love of their music and have both advanced to a high level of skill. They are also good friends, often doing things together just for fun. This relationship has not only led them to participate in a number of events together, but has also furthered their collaborative flute skills.
