The ascendant American flautist Lee Anne Thompson is excited about the pieces she will play….
MERIDA – Lee Anne Thompson will be the guest soloist in the concert that the Yucatan Symphony Orchestra (OSY) will offer on Sunday November 26, for which she has chosen the Concerto for Flute, H. 425 by Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, second son of Johann Sebastian Bach.
She shares that the teacher Juan Carlos Lomónaco, director of OSY, sent her a list of options. “I chose this one and I thought it would not be there, and I feel very lucky because it’s the first time I’m going to play it. The concert will be something I’ll always remember.”
In addition to the concert, the flute player will also remember the streets of Mérida, which she is visiting for the first time.
Lee Anne resides in Dallas, Texas, the ninth most populous city in the United States and where the Symphony Orchestra of Las Colinas has its headquarters, where she has been the main flautist since 2003.
It was precisely in that city that Lee Anne met maestro Lomónaco. He had been invited as guest director and from there a program of exchange between the Texas orchestra and the Yucatan Symphony was generated.
“The Yucatan Symphony Orchestra is very vibrant, and for me it’s special to be able to play with it because it will help me enrich my curriculum,” says Lee Anne, after which she recounts everything she has achieved, including the first place in the Upper Midwest Flute Competition and the Frank Bowen Competition.
