"Happy practicing!"

An interview with flutist Alexandra Hawley

Alexandra Williams Hawley is a flutist who performs throughout the United States as a soloist and in chamber music ensembles. She teaches flute at Stanford University, Palo Alto, California—her alma mater.

Fifteen years ago, she founded Avedis (pronounced AH-vay-deess), which means "good news" in Armenian. This is a unique San Francisco concert series devoted to the rich and diverse chamber music for the flute in various combinations with other instruments.

Alexandra enjoyed a long association with the renowned French flutist Jean-Pierre Rampal, with whom she performed and recorded during a celebration of the tenth season of Avedis. She describes him as a "teacher, mentor, and friend."
