Magic Flutes

The sound is all around, in this virtuoso flute concert featuring iconic repertoire and a world premiere.

“Claire Chase is a staggering virtuoso who plays with the cocky assurance of a rock star.” —Los Angeles Times

The Pied Piper legend is just one inspiration for this playful “surround-sound” flute concert, in which the music springs from unexpected directions.

Descended from the oldest of all known instruments, the flute has long been credited with magical powers. Its surprising range of voices include ethereal to edgy, connecting the human, animal, and spirit worlds.

The U.S.A.’s Claire Chase (last featured in The Whisper Opera), France’s Patrick Gallois, Canada’s Robert Aitken and Leslie Newman, and Canadian-American Marina Piccinini are featured. They perform iconic repertoire by Claude Debussy, Philip Glass, Toru Takemitsu, and Harry Somers, along with a world premiere from Canada’s Anna Höstman.
Pre-Concert Chat – 7:00 PM

Arrive early for a free pre-concert chat with Artistic Director Lawrence Cherney, and artists from the concert.
