Russo was commissioned by flutist Helene Rosenblatt to compose a signature piece for the newly form Connecticut Flute Orchestra -- this two movement work is dedicated to this fine ensemble. This flute orchestra music was completed in June 2018. It consists of two tonal movements: one depicting the Connecticut State tree (Mountain-laurel) and one depicting the Connecticut State bird (American Robin).
