Beard/Haneline “Inspire” at the 2019 MidAltalntic Flute Convention

UNO’s Professor of Flute, Christine Beard and Instructor of Piano, Stacie Haneline joined forces to perform a recital at the 2019 MidAtlantic Flute Convention, held February 16-17 in in Reston, VA, sponsored by the Flute Society of Washington (FSW). Described by convention attendees as “brilliant,” “inspiring,” and “a highlight of the convention,” their program – entitled Something for Everyone: 21st Century Music for Piccolo – featured music for piccolo written by composers from around the world, including Derek Charke (Canada), Exequiel Mantega (Argentina), Herman Beeftink (Netherlands-USA), Dana Wilson (USA), Nebraska-based composer Daniel Baldwin, and Matt Smith (UK).

The convention’s program chair, Troy Paloantonio (U.S. Army Old Guard Fife and Drum Corp/Catholic University) also joined them in a performance of “Tango” for two piccolos and piano by Vinicio Meza (Costa Rica). In addition to performing, Beard served as a final round judge the FSW Collegiate Soloist Competition held on the first day of the convention, for which three pre-selected finalists performed unaccompanied works for flute by J.S. Bach and Katherine Hoover. For more information about the MidAtlantic Flute Convention, visit For videos from the duo’s FSW performance, visit Dr. Beard’s website at
