Rhonda Larson is a Grammy Award-winning player of the flute, born and raised in the mountains of the ‘Big Sky’ country—Montana. Montana instilled the essence of who Rhonda is as a performing musician: a nature-loving, trail-blazing ‘wild west’ spirit with a mountain-top perspective as to creative possibilities.
Rhonda integrates her classical training with various ethnic traditions, eras, and an array of flutes from around the world. Her music merges the most soulful elements of sacred, folk, medieval, classical, and Celtic music. As a composer, Larson’s visionary force combines her musical and technical wizardry in creating a refreshing new music for the flute.
Rhonda owns and operates her own publishing company, Wood Nymph Music, and is a ‘flutriloquist’—a term she uses to describe her remarkable ability to sing and play the flute simultaneously.
Rhonda has a discography of over 20 commercial recordings, including her solo recordings, Free as a Bird, and Distant Mirrors. She performed on a CBS finale episode of “Survivor” live from Madison Square Gardens, seen by over 40 million viewers, and is featured in “Flute Stories–101 Inspirational Stories from the World’s Best Flute Players” publication.
Rhonda and her husband Lee live in Southwestern Connecticut, and part-time at their home in the Lazio region of Italy. When not playing the flute, Rhonda can be found out-doors.
“Rhonda’s evening of flute music radiated. There was a straightforward positive musicality to what she did and it cheered the listener.”
—The New York Times
