I leave in four days for my first tour of Berlin and Sweden. Here’s where you’ll find me performing and teaching:
It was an honour to present and perform at the National Flute Convention in Orlando, Florida. I spoke on a career panel about entrepreneurship and performed at the showcase for the Gemeinhardt Musical Instruments all-stars at #NFAFlute2018. I wish I could put into words how special the Gemeinhardt flute family is to me. Such wonderful people who warm my heart and make FANTASTIC instruments! Thank you for helping me shine.
And so it begins! 1st stop: GANDER for a cool house concert at Melissa Tee‘s beautiful spot! Time for some serious Tetris action in the car. So grateful to be doing this. #PiccFlute #gemeinhardtontheroad #GemeinhardtArtist#flutegirl #flutelooper #touringlife #houseconcert #atlanticcanadatour#musicpassionlife #getyourfluteon
This is my first time attending the National Flute Convention and I’m totally blown away! Such amazing talent everywhere. Super informative workshops about everything flute and many inspiring concerts! It’s an honour to be performing at this year’s convention. Mark down Sat Aug 12 from 5:00 – 5:45pm for some “Flute and Film” with Viviana Guzman and myself sharing our original music and film! #NFAFlute2017
“SUNSET SUNRISE is for connecting to our higher selves, for rising above daily concerns, to open into the space of Love…a beautifully serene way to invoke meditation. Rozalind MacPhail is a fountain of creativity, a plethora of surprises and colors.” – Viviana Guzman (The Flute View)
I used my Super 8 camera in Wilmington, North Carolina during my Cucalorus Festival Artist Residency and hand-processed three rolls of film with the help of Andre Silva and Mariah Kramer at UNCW Film Studies. Thanks to Dan Brawley in 2014 for giving me his precious rolls of film! “Now Accepting Food Stamps” was my reaction to feeling heartbroken about the poverty and racism I was witnessing down South. With all that’s been going on in our current world climate, it feels right to share this film. https://theovercast.ca/a-sneak-peak-of-rozalind-macphails-ecma-winning-audio-visual-project
Thanks to Daze Jeffries for writing this beautiful article – “Leave a Note: Place & Memory in Music of Rozalind MacPhail”

It seems super fitting that I would watch this sunrise of Signal Hill as I began producing/composing/recording a new album as part of the RPM Challenge. What’s the RPM Challenge you ask? It’s a challenge to write and record an entire album of original music within the shortest month of the year.
