    PANdemonium4 Biographies

    PANdemonium4 is a flute quartet of Ohio-based teacher-performer professionals, representing a diverse group of universities across the state. We share a mutual passion for promoting all things flute in central Ohio and impacting the global future of chamber music collaborations within the setting of the quartet. Since forming in 2016, we have performed at two National Flute Association Annual Conventions and in seven different states. Our recording of our commission “Flugge Jazz Fantasy”, arranged by Andy Frederick, is featured on Bolling & Beyond: Lisa Jelle, Jazz-Inspired Flute (2019).

    One of the most active professional flute quartets in the country, PANdemonium4 regularly commissions and premieres new works for quartet. Developing the flute quartet repertoire and performing high-quality new works for audiences across the country is a major goal of the ensemble. Since 2019, PANdemonium4 has performed concerts and given flute masterclasses at Capital University for International Women’s Day; the University of Kentucky; Ashland University; Oberlin College; the University of Akron; Bowling Green State University; Western Kentucky University; Middle Tennessee State University, and Otterbein University. We look forward to performing three pieces at the August 2021 National Flute Association Annual Convention in Washington, DC: Cynthia Folio’s "Four 'Scapes", Linda Kernohan’s "My Compass Still to Guide Me," and the world premiere of a new flute quartet written for us by Maria Grenfell.
