Open Sound West Presents: Flute virtuoso Orlando Cela performs an evening of contemporary solo flute classics by Sciarrino, Ferneyhough, and Hosokawa

Flutist, conductor, teacher, and arranger Orlando Cela embraces all aspects of music. From Vivaldi's Double Concerto with Paula Robison to Indian classical music with Samir Chatterjee, Orlando plays flute in a variety of styles and settings, including with the I/O New Music Ensemble, Music at Eden's Edge, Duo SopraVoce (with violinist Annegret Klaua), and as a solo performer, collaborating with musicians such as pianists Aaron Jackson, Yukiko Shimazaki, Sivan Etedgee, harpist Barbara Poeschl-Edrich and many more. He has premiered countless works by composers such as Anthony De Ritis, Maxwell Dulaney, Zhu Shu Jia, and Benoit Granier, to name a few. He has performed in many parts of the USA and abroad in the Czech Republic, Austria, Germany, China, Hungary, Spain, and Great Britain. Future engagements will take him to perform and give classes at the Beijing Central Conservatory, Ningbo University School of the arts, Hanover, Paris and Vienna.
Orlando has arranged a large number of works for multiple flutes which include not only Classical music favorites, but also folk music from Romania, Bulgaria, Venezuela, Argentina, India, Croatia, Japan, and more. His love for music from all over the world caused him to create "Las Paraulatas Bostonianas," a group that expands the tradition of Venezuelan folk music.
Orlando is now working on his fifth recording, "Project Extended," a compilation of pieces by contemporary composers who wrote works for him using nothing except extended techniques. You can find his other recordings on iTunes, Amazon and CDBaby.
Orlando currently teaches at home. In the past, he was on the faculty at College of the Holy Cross and at UMass Dartmouth. Orlando studied at DePauw University with Anne Reynolds and Eric Edberg, at the New England Conservatory with Paula Robison,Tamara Brooks and Frank Battisti, and in Austria with Barbara Gisler-Haase. He has performed in masterclasses for Raymond Guiot, Shigenori Kudo, Alain Marion and Trevor Wye. Visit http://orlandocela/ for more information.
