Carrie Rose is dedicated to performing flute, composing, and educating young people and adults about music. She is producer, composer, and performer for the Origins Concert Series in Silver Spring, Maryland—a hub for adventurous music seekers that features a world premiere of her compositions on each concert. The series is supported by the Arts and Humanities Commission of Montgomery County and her work has also received numerous grants from the Maryland State Arts Council and the American Composers Forum.
As a champion of contemporary music, Ms. Rose has given solo flute performances in New York City and contemporary music workshops at several universities. Her new music CD "Books of Flutes," released by 11 West Records, features solo and ensemble music and was broadcast it in its entirety by WMUA in Amherst, Massachusetts. In Wasington, D.C.’s City Paper, she was named a “favorite local composer,” and her compositions have been featured at University of DC, played by the DC Youth Orchestra, and at Strathmore Mansion.
Ms. Rose earned Master and Bachelor of Music degrees from the Cleveland Institute of Music, where she studied with Joshua Smith, principal flute of the Cleveland Orchestra. She teaches flute in her private flute studio in Takoma Park, Maryland, and general music classes at the Oneness-Family School, an international peace academy in Bethesda, Maryland. In her free time, Ms. Rose enjoys the expansiveness of hiking in the woods, and relives the time of Jane Austen with the elegance and playfulness of English Country dancing.
