Flutist Francesca Ferrara received a Master of Music degree in Contemporary Performance from Manhattan School of Music where she was a student of Tara O’Connor, and a Bachelor of Music degree from Boston Conservatory where she studied with Sarah Brady. As a committed advocate for new music, she frequently collaborates with composers and is a core member of Amalgama, a NYC chamber ensemble dedicated to the synthesis of improvisation and contemporary classical music. Francesca has also performed with a number of other ensembles, including Argento New Music Project, Sound Icon, Cygnus Ensemble, ShoutHouse, and Dance Theatre of Harlem. In March of 2020 she was a performer in residence for the Louis Moreau Institute in New Orleans, and in August of 2018 was a resident fellow in the Contemporary Performance Institute at Brandeis University. With a passion for collaboration and sharing new music with a wider community, Francesca co-produces Blank Canvas at Future Space, a concert series dedicated to presenting diverse programs by up and coming composers and ensembles from around NYC. Incorporating her love for food into her music, Francesca produced Common Senses, a “concert” that brought chefs and composers together to create a multi-sensory experience.
