Mira Magrill – flute

In December 2017, Vibrant Currents formed to premiere a concert of new music in NYC. The concert featured world premieres of new works by ensemble founders Glenda Bates and Eldad Tarmu. Raissa Fahlman’s experience in both Classical and Jazz made her a perfect fit for this new Classical Chamber Jazz aesthetic, and Mira MaGrill’s beautiful sound and expressive playing completed the quartet. At the first rehearsal, we knew we had discovered something special in this stellar collection of artistic musicians, and our beautifully unique instrumentation. We are committed to commissioning, composing, and arranging works for this ensemble.
Praised for her beautiful sound, natural stage presence, and expressive energy, flutist Mira Magrill is an active musician, teacher, and soloist in the New York City area. She has won numerous competitions and awards, and has performed extensively as a soloist and in chamber ensembles. www.miramagrill.com
