What do you get when you gather 189 community flutists and have them perform a piece mimicking the migration of birds? Honestly, a pretty cool experience. This past week, I was lucky to join The St. Paul Chamber Orchestra's presentation of Salvatore Sciarrino's “Cutting the Circle of Sounds,” a Knight Arts Challenge winner.
