9911 Quantz

This minor planet is named after Johann Joachim Quantz (1697 – 1773), a German flutist who was also known for flute-making and his flute writings and compositions. He even gave flute lessons to Frederick the Great, the Crown Prince of Prussia.

The symbol of this minor planet is a large circle with a horizontal line crossing it below and to the right, representative of a person playing a transverse flute and also of the Latin letter Q.
