Linda Vogt Evans has died, aged 90.
As number one flute in orchestras ancient and modern, she set the national standard on her instrument from the 1960s on. In Sydney jazz clubs, they called her Hot Lips.
Linda attributed her success – the freedom to express herself – to studying the Alexander Technique, another Australian invention. I have heard many claims for the technique – that it improves posture, reduces aches and pains and relieves migraine – but never that it liberates personality. Have others had that benefit?
Sleep well, First Lady. Read a full appreciation here.
