ANDREA “Fluterscooter” FISHER is a flutist, producer, and entrepreneur. A graduate of The Juilliard School as a student of Carol Wincenc and a Powell Flutes artist, Fluterscooter has given lectures on Musical Entrepreneurship at NYU, Penn State, Juilliard, and the Galway Flute Festival, to name a few. Known for her unique performances, she was the first flutist to perform with hologram technology, and her viral performance of flute and organ simultaneously at last year's Iowa Flute Festival has been viewed over 1 million times. Highlights of the 2017-18 season include a debut in South Korea at the Gonjiam Flute Festival, a solo concert in Guangzhou, China, and Guest Artist of Texas Flute Society festival and Iowa Flute Intensive. As an entrepreneur, Fluterscooter is owner of the popular Fluterscooter bag company and co-founder of The Flute View Magazine. After realizing the need for a more stylish case cover for flutists, she started the fun and fashionable line, which is now worn by today's leading flutists. Fluterscooter's philosophy is that there should be an equally beautiful case cover for the beautiful instrument inside.
