New York Flutists successfully launched its first season of “New York Flutist in Concert” with featured guest artist Keith Underwood. At the concert, they also premiered (North American) Cuento Infantil sin Palabras (A Children’s Story without Words) by Venezuelan composer Andrés Levell which gained greater audience on Social media and made headline on the Venezuela Sinfónica.
