Brass Players, Help Me Out

.
2011-10-22 Concert For Kathmandu Kids 2

One of the acts at the Concert For Kathmandu Kids was Farshid Etniko, Iranian-born Farshid Soltanshani play an amalgam of Latin, jazz, blues and Middle Eastern music. The performance was spell-binding but, as the event's volunteer photographer, my eye kept returning to this flame-haired brass player.

She played a trumpet earlier in the set but what's this, a flugelhorn? Looking for some help here.
There is no mention of the name of this performer in the program or the group's website. Identified or not, she drew everyone's attention.

I wouldn't have a clue what the instrument is, Bob, but I do know I love the shot. How could one resist photographing her. I hope it sounded good too...

Flugelhorn indeed.

I love her look!

Flugelhorn sounds correct. She really stands out. I would also have focused my camera on her.

Yes, that's a flugelhorn, and that's Dawn Weber playing it.
