PANdemonium4 flute quartet to perform in Glidden Hall on Sunday

The members of PANdemonium4 will come together for a special evening to share their musical abilities with the people and students of Athens.

PANdemonium4, a flute quartet of Ohio-based teacher-performer professionals, represents a diverse group of universities across the state. The group will be holding a free chamber music concert in Robert Glidden Hall on Sunday evening at 4 p.m.

The group has been performing together for a little more than two years, and to Alison Sincoff, a member of the flute quartet and an associate flute professor at Ohio University, PANdemonium4 has taken off and hasn’t stopped going since.

“We keep a pretty active schedule performing all around the states of Ohio and West Virginia,” Sincoff said. “It’s been a real fortunate opportunity, and we’re planning to go on tour to Kentucky and Tennessee in January.”

In the past two years, PANdemonium4 has played at two national flute conventions, as well as traveled to Michigan, Minnesota and Florida to play at flute conventions taking place there.

“We’re just inching our way around,” Sincoff said. “We all just really enjoy promoting our quartet. It has a lot of traditional and standard repertoire, but we’re excited to expand on that.”

The ensemble has also performed at each member’s respective universities, those including Capital University, Otterbein University and Marietta College.

“We all come from different avenues, which has brought a lot of variety to the group,” Sincoff said. “It’s been really amazing.”

PANdemonium will feature music written by Daniel Dorff, Michael Rene Torres, Andy Frederick, Linda Kernohan and Mike Mower.

“We’re conditioning a lot of works, so for this upcoming concert, we’ve programmed two or three compositions brand new,” Sincoff said. “We try to pick from standard repertoire and play music pleasing to everyone’s ear.”

Sadie Cossman, a junior studying music therapy, is a member of of the Flute Studio at OU in the School of Music. Cossman will be attending the performance to support Sincoff and her colleagues. Cossman has also seen PANdemonium4 perform before and was pleased with their concert.

“I am expecting a fantastic performance,” Cossman said. “They will also be providing a flute master class to us prior to the concert, which will be very fun for everyone in our studio.”

Lauren Edwards, a graduate student studying music performance, is also thrilled she will be attending PANdemonium’s concert.

“It is wonderful to see flutists from all parts of Ohio come together to perform,” Edwards said. “All four flutists are outstanding musicians and teachers, so I know this will be a great concert.”
