Enjoy a free, live performance by Althea René, who began her musical journey at the tender age of four.

Today, she is a full-time performing and recording artist, regarded as one of the world's most exciting solo improvisational flutists. For more than 10 years she worked as a Deputy Sheriff in Detroit during the day and performed in jazz clubs at night. She studied classical music while attending Howard University. 

In May 2013, she released her hit CD titled In the Flow.
