Sherry Finzer & Radiant Sky

Flutist Sherry Finzer is an accomplished artist whose talents run the gamut from classical to world, jazz and pop music. She performs regularly as a soloist and with several groups where she serves as both an integral virtuoso and also an entrepreneurial businesswoman.

As a classical artist, Sherry has won three national competitions and in 2007 was selected from hundreds of entrants for the alto flute chair in the National Flute Association's Professional Flute Choir. She has captured honors, including several firsts, at competitions in Pennsylvania, Arizona and New York. As a Pearl Flute Performing Artist and Clinician, Sherry holds flute choir workshops and master classes throughout Arizona, as well as teaching privately.

Among the groups Sherry fronts or works with regularly are Radiant Sky, Dulce VAS, guitarist Diego Andres, Ivory Wind, guitarist Anthony Mazzella, the flute duo FlutAZtic with Leslie Lewis, the Trillium Flute Trio and CAFE (Central AZ Flute Ensemble). Her flute ensembles are available for weddings, corporate parties, concerts and festivals.

Among her accomplishments are her 2006 solo CD Desert Journey, a compilation of Latin- and world-influenced songs written by guitarists and composers Ric Flauding and Christopher Caliendo. She has also produced a relaxation/meditation CD called Sanctuary (2009) and a holiday CD with Dulce VAS, Christmas Picante. These and other recordings were released by Sherry’s own recording label, Heart Dance Records.

As if that wasn’t all enough, Sherry is also the founder and executive director of the Arizona World Music Initiative, a nonprofit organization developed to excite youth about world music through cultural interactive music presentations. SAM is proud to be working with this talented lady!
