You could say that Ronda Benson Ford, our applied flute instructor, has had an exciting semester! She began this fall in collaboration with Steve Ray from @utctheatrecompany on a joint project for flute and narrator called Flora, Fauna, and Flute. The pair performed here on campus and took their project on the road with performances at Dalton State College, two local elementary schools, and two Chattanooga public libraries. In addition to these performances, Dr. Ford led our very own UTC Flute Choir during an active season with performances at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, Barnes and Noble Bookstore at Hamilton Place, and First Christian Church.
On top of her many other contributions to our department, Dr. Ford served as an expert ambassador leading clinics throughout the area with multiple school visits in both Tennessee and Georgia. It is only fitting that she learned this semester that she has been invited to perform at the College Music Society South Central Regional Conference at Southeastern Oklahoma State University during March of 2018.
Congratulations Dr. Ford on a wonderful semester! #faculty#friday#flute#instructor#congrats#utc#collaboration#ambassador#performer#invitation#collegemusicsociety#oklahomastateuniversity#utchattanoogamusic
Friday feels!! 🤗💙 This week was exhausting with wrapping up projects, grading finals, and checking off tasks before winter break. Yesterday at our graduate student holiday party I was asked “How’s life after graduation?” and I was a little sad to respond “I still work at home every evening!” The transition from student to professor has been rough... 🖥📚 Resolution for 2018: Leave work at work!
