Missouri Adventure for flute quartet (2020)
Missouri Adventure was commissioned to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Missouri's statehood. Gay Kahkonen drew inspiration from Missouri’s many beautiful natural spaces. Inspired by the forests surrounding the Ozarks, as well as the many rivers, this piece is a gorgeous homage to the beautiful spaces of Missouri.
It was recorded in 2021, but did not receive a live premiere until the 47th annual Florida Flute Association Convention in Orlando, Florida. It will have an NFA Convention premiere in 2023, at the convention in Phoenix, AZ.
