Chenoa Anderson

Flutist Chenoa Anderson is one of Canada’s leading interpreters of new music and has been praised by critics, audiences and composers as a dynamic and exacting performer. Always seeking exciting new composers and repertoire, she has commissioned and premiered dozens of solo and ensemble pieces. Most recently, she has collaborated with composers on new works for flute with interactive electronics and video.

She received her early musical training in her home city of Edmonton, later pursuing performance studies at the University of Toronto (B.Mus.) and the University of British Columbia (M.Mus.).

As a freelance musician, she has performed with many of Canada’s finest musicians and ensembles: Mixtur with composer Ian Crutchley, performing experimental repertoire for flutes, electronics, video and found instruments; and improvising with Damn Magpies.

Chenoa Anderson’s first solo recording, Big Flutes: Canadian Music for Alto and Bass Flutes was released in March 2006, and was nominated for a 2006 Western Canadian Music Award. Krishna’s Flute was released in December 2013 and features new works for flute and interactive electronics.
