Coastal instructor wins national flute competition

  Amy Tully  
Amy Tully, an instructor of music at Coastal Carolina University and a doctoral music student at the University of South Carolina, has won the National Flute Association's 31st annual competition for newly published music.

Tully will perform a recital of new flute music before 6,000 professional flutists at the association's convention, which will take place Aug. 9 - 12 in Albuquerque, N.M. "I am very excited to be selected to perform at the NFA this summer," said Tully. "It is a tremendous honor. Conventions always are educational, but to be able to also perform new music that has never been heard is invigorating both academically and musically."

A resident of Myrtle Beach, Tully has taught at Coastal since 2002. She earned her bachelor's degree in flute performance from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and her master's in musicology from Northwestern University. In August, she will earn a doctoral music degree in flute performance from the University of South Carolina.

She is principal flutist with the Long Bay Symphony and frequently performs with the Strand Strings and Tidelands Trio throughout the South Carolina. Most recently, Tully performed with the University of South Carolina's touring Chamber Orchestra as principal flutist in Italy, Bulgaria and the Czech Republic.
