It’s a pairing that could only have formed in the mind of Mozart – the genius composer’s elegant, even dainty flute quartets and flute concertos juxtaposed with some of his raunchiest writing.

When the award-winning flutist and composer Katherine Hoover starts writing a new piece of music, she’s never sure where it’s going to go. And she’s okay with that.

“You never know where it’s going to take you,” Hoover said in a recent phone interview. “You just have to work and express it and let it be and let it take you there.”  

As Hoover launches a career as a poet, she says working with words is much the same way. And she's okay with that, too.
