Annelie Metrakos, flute

Hello, I'm Annelie Metrakos and I have been the principal flutist of Orchestra London since 1978. I was born in Holland where my mother who was an artist and a violinist, took me to many concerts. When I was 11 we moved to Calgary where I started flute lessons, and a few years later I got to play with the Calgary Philharmonic for the first time.

My later studies took me to New York when I won a Canada Council grant to study with Julius Baker, who was then the pricipal flutist of the New York Philharmonic.

I have played with orchestas such as the Victoria Symphony and the National Arts Centre Orchestra and have performed as soloist both with orchestras and for CBC recitals.

I taught flute at U.W.O for 25 years and now I especially love teaching my private students at home. I have two sons, both of whom are amongst other things,guitarists and song writers. I have always been equally in love with both music and art and do a lot of art work in all different styles and medias. Creativity is a strong life force for which I am very grateful.

If there are any music lovers out there, any level, any age, who would just love to learn to play the flute, just get in touch. I would love to hear from you.
