"The pieces were played with great style and joy, resulting in a captivating performance." ~Greater Boston Flute Association Gazette.
The Rosewood Chamber Ensemble (Barbara Hopkins, flute; Judy Handler, guitar) performs songs and dance music from early America. Their repertoire ranges from familiar Stephen Foster songs to lively dances and newly rediscovered music of the nineteenth century. Particularly interesting are the background stories they tell about the period, the music, and the flutes. Barbara plays these concerts on authentic Asa Hopkins flutes. One of these flutes is made from rosewood, and that combined with the rosewood in Judy's guitar inspired the name Rosewood Chamber Ensemble.
