Grammy Award winner and Montana native Rhonda Larson integrates her classical training with various ethnic traditions, eras, and flutes from around the world. Her music merges the most soulful elements of sacred, folk, medieval, classical, and Celtic music.
Rhonda's diversity, combined with her musical and technical wizardry, has begun a new generation for the flute as a leading voice in the music world. Composing much of her own repertoire, Larson continues to be recognized as a visionary force, creating a refreshing hybrid music for the flute.
She has recorded a variety of flute music for the CBS television series, "Survivor", and performed on their Live CBS finale episode from Madison Square Gardens, seen by over 40 million viewers. Larson journeyed to South Africa as a musical ambassador for the United States to perform for the Parliament of the World's Religions, sharing the stage with such luminaries as Nelson Mandela and the Dalai Lama. Rhonda has performed world-wide, and has a discography of over 20 recordings, including two solo releases, "Free as a Bird", and "Distant Mirrors". As a composer, she also operates her own music publishing company, Wood Nymph Music.
Rhonda and her husband Lee deLisle live in Southwestern Michigan, where Rhonda continues her creative work and practice of the flute in her studio which is an historical 1878 one-room schoolhouse located on their property. They also live part-time at their second home in the Lazio region of Italy.
