Thank YOU for the Excellent

Thank YOU for the Excellent Concert, D! L'il Guy , Ka'at , and I enjoyed it immensely . I saw an instrument I haven't seen before and decided to look it up. . .an Alto Flute with a head curve joint. Totally Awesome!

I would think one would have to blow harder to get around that neck to the keys; Ka'at studied flute from Elementary school through High School - a mighty long time. She even had private lessons and went to competitions at Peabody Institute . . a long time ago!

Ka'at did Orchestra as well as Marching Bands ( depends on what Public schools offered at the time of transfers); nearly every weekend when Ka'at wasn't involved with her music we went to the Kennedy Center and enjoyed Concerts . Jean-Pierre Rampal and his golden Flutes that he'd been playing since 1958, was one such enjoyable concert!

Jean-Pierre Rampal had two Golden flutes - one from 1869 18-carat gold Lot a" Stradivarius", and one he was gifted for his debut in America 14-carat golden flute. He passed away in 2000, I wonder where his golden flutes are now?!
