Syrinx Journey Day 206: “Syrinx” after New York Flute Club

This Syrinx is from after my performance today at the New York Flute Club flute fair. I was honored and delighted to take part in the concert celebrating composer Katherine Hoover’s 75th birthday. Jeremy Gill, piano, and I performed Mountain and Mesa, a work that we premiered at the National Flute Convention in New York in 2009. I recorded the work with pianist Charles Abramovic on my CD “Odyssey: 11 American Premieres for Flute and Piano” (Innova Recordings). It was a great pleasure to present Katherine’s wonderful and colorful music before a large audience of (mostly) fellow flutists, and to share the stage with terrific colleagues who also performed in the concert. We closed with Katherine’s Peace is the Way, for eight flutes.
