Freshman excels at flute


Steamboat Springs High School freshman, Brittany Lamb, won the Music Teacher's National Association State Competition Oct. 28 at the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley.

Brittany competed in the woodwind division along with young musicians from all over Colorado.

Her flute performance represented music from the Baroque, Classical and Romantic periods, including Bach's Suite in B minor, Mozart's Concerto in G for Flute and Strings and Genin's Carnival of Venice.

Brittany's win in Colorado qualifies her to compete in the divisional competition Jan. 12 through 14, 2001, in Minneapolis, Minn.

If successful there, she will compete and perform at the Music Teacher's National Association National Convention in March, 2001, in Washington, D.C.

She has won the Colorado Music Teacher's Association state auditions three of the last six years.

She was a finalist in the Fort Collins Young Artist National Competition in February at Colorado State University.

She has performed with the elite Disney Young Musicians Symphony Orchestra at Ravinia Music Festival in Chicago and at the Lincoln Center in New York.

Brittany is a flute student of Mary Beth Norris of Steamboat Springs, and Steamboat pianist, Vicki Sharp, is her accompanist .
