Amy Morris was second flutist with the Minnesota Opera Orchestra for 20 years before moving back to her hometown of Omaha, Nebraska in 2017. She also performed with the Minnesota Orchestra, Mankato Symphony, Sarasota Opera, and the Cedar Rapids Symphony (now Orchestra Iowa). She was a founding member of four chamber music groups: fisarflautica (flute, accordion); The Second Winds (flute, clarinet, bassoon); Indånde (flute, oboe, piano); and The Prairie Song Project (flute, mezzo soprano, piano). These groups have performed in school educational programs, college guest artist recitals, and international venues.
Amy has performed at conventions of the National Flute Association, British Flute Society, and Upper Midwest Flute Association. With grants from The Scottish Arts Council (Creative Scotland), Minnesota State Arts Board, A Very Small Arts Fund, and the American Composers Forum, Amy has commissioned and performed music around the US and Europe. She taught at Hamline, St. Catherine, and Concordia Universities in St. Paul, Minnesota, and the Omaha Conservatory of Music. Her music degrees are from Northwestern University (Master of Music) and the University of Iowa (Bachelor of Music). Amy has released five recordings, and published two arrangements of flute duets based on operatic themes. She currently is a substitute musician with the Omaha Symphony and Orchestra Iowa.
