Montgomery Symphony flutist to perform in concert for museum’s lunchtime series

AUBURN – The Montgomery Symphony Orchestra’s principal flutist, Nancy Vinson, will perform at the Jule Collins Smith Museum, Thursday, Feb. 16 from noon to 1 p.m. as part of the museum’s weekly classical music series.

Vinson has played with the Montgomery Symphony Orchestra for more than 20 years, and as teacher for more than 35 years, has produced some of the state’s outstanding young flutists.

Vinson will be accompanied by pianist Laurelie Gheesling, who accompanies and teaches piano at Auburn University. One of Gheesling’s specialties is using the Alexander Technique to help performers use their instruments in ways that promote physical health and reduce injury.
