Sara Andon lives in several worlds as a flutist. She can be heard on countless Hollywood film soundtracks as a member of an elite group of studio players; she performs as a concert artist with orchestras around the world; she is principal flutist of the Redlands Symphony; and she teaches aspiring flutists at the University of Redlands. Tomorrow, she will be the featured soloist with the Kalamazoo Symphony Orchestra , bringing several exclusive scores of movie arrangements for flute and orchestra to the Sounds of the Season program. These arrangements come courtesy of producer Robert Townson , vice-president of soundtrack A&R for the prestigious film-score record label Varese-Sarabande .

The concert will also feature the Kalamazoo Children's Chorus, and two soloists from the KSO's Youth Soloist Competition: Sava Velkoff and Alex Smith.
