Flutist Takes World by Storm

Annie Wu's impressive skills on the flute have taken her around the world in recent months with performances in North Carolina, Las Vegas and Austria.

Annie, a junior, won first prize in the National Flute Association's high school soloist competition in August in Charlotte, North Carolina. She was the youngest first-prize winner in the association's history. Annie's talents got her featured in the National Flute Association Quarterly magazine and interviews on San Francisco's KGO radio station. She was invited to many performances, including a performance at the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas.

This summer, Annie was invited to appear as the soloist with the Vienna International Orchestra under the baton of Michele Santorsola at the Schloss Halbturn (the summer castle of Empress Marie Theresa). She recently returned from Austria where the concert was a big success.
 
Annie has been invited to appear as soloist with the San Francisco Symphony in November 2012 and February 2013. She will appear with the symphony in seven family concerts around the Bay Area. The  February 23 concert will be at the Davies Symphony Hall in San Francisco. Annie will also perform the Flute Concerto by Jacques Ibert with the Diablo Symphony Orchestra in November as part of winning the Young Artist Competition.
 
In October 2012, Annie is scheduled to appear on National Public Radio’s show From the Top with Christopher O’Riley taped live at the Mondavi Center in Davis.

Congratulations to Annie for her many outstanding achievements.
