<p>Kris Palmer holds a Doctorate of Musical Arts from Rice University and has been teaching music since 1992: from beginner recorder lessons to advanced flute recital and competition preparation for adults. &quot;Clearly among the few current performers on any instrument to fully understand the nature of Baroque music&quot; (New York Concert Review), she is the author of a book on 18th-century ornamentation and an adept interpreter of Bach, Mozart, and their contemporaries. As the mother of a disabled child, she is passionate about teaching music to children with learning differences. She made her Carnegie Hall Recital Debut as a winner in the Artists International Competition, and she is a 2nd-prize winner in the NFA's Young Artist Competition. Formerly with the New Mexico Symphony Orchestra and the Chamber Orchestra of Albuquerque, founder of two award-winning quintets, she has released a solo CD of her own arrangements of Baroque music.
