This internationally acclaimed jazz flutist has not been at Merryall for several years �" and we are delighted that she returns this year. Consistently voted among the top jazz flutists in the Downbeat Jazz Poll and honored as Jazz Flutist of the Year nominee by the Jazz Journalists Association, she has released nearly two dozen recordings on major jazz labels. She has toured with notables including Luciano Pavarotti and was principal flutist with the Monterey Bay Orchestra in the early ‘90s, and the National Flute Association Jazz Chair from 2005 to 2010. A cum laude graduate of the Hartt School of Music, Ali’s classical training was with Harold Bennett and John Wion. She is a Gemeinhardt Artist and Clinician, with an Autograph Series of flutes she helped design. On top of everything else, she is one of Merryall vice president Al Bayers’ former students!
