Harpist Aimée Raechel and flutist Krisztina Dér formed Winds Upon a String in their freshman year of college, beginning an adventure of musical fun and exploration. Within months of performing together, they were featured in an honors recital, leading to many performing opportunities. These include UMBC President Freeman Hrabowski III's Board of Regents Dinner (2009), a luncheon held in honor of internationally acclaimed conductor Marin Alsop (2010), and the 20th anniversary celebration of Freeman Hrabowski III's UMBC presidency (2012). Aimée and Krisztina love classic flute and harp literature, as well as pushing boundaries by premiering new music or making fun arrangements of their own. They enjoy both traditional and unconventional performance opportunities.
