Donate to Alcyone Ensemble.
The Alcyone Ensemble is not your average two-flute-and-piano ensemble.
In 2009, during rehearsal with the Oakland East Bay Symphony, flutists Amy Likar and Rena Urso-Trapani decided to form a unique chamber ensemble. After brainstorming names and repertoire, a conversation with their favorite San Francisco collaborative pianist Miles Graber was all that was left—The Alcyone Ensemble was born. In addition to performing, Amy and Rena are both licensed Andover Educators and travel throughout the US and abroad presenting body mapping classes.
The Alcyone Ensemble is passionate about collaborating with composers, commissioning and showcasing new and exciting works for the flute ensemble repertoire. Alcyone also loves to keep the tried and true classics of J.S. Bach, C.P.E. Bach and Doppler in their regular rotation. Rena and Amy enjoy performing baroque period works on their modern flutes with wooden headjoints, a nod to the style and sound of the beautiful, baroque flute.
