Welcome to The New York Flute Club
Join Us for Our 97th Season (2016-2017)
Our stellar concert season continues with a masterclass followed by an all-piccolo concert by Sarah Jackson, piccoloist with the Los Angeles Philharmonic. If your first instinct is to shy away from a concert entirely played on piccolo let me try to disabuse you of that idea!
I first met Sarah Jackson when she played the Concerto for Piccolo by Lowell Liebermann with the Northeastern Pennsylvania Philharmonic where I am the piccoloist in the flute section. She made me love the piece and I was so impressed with her beautiful playing. We met again a few years later at the gala finale concert for the National Flute Association Convention in Washington DC. We shared a stand for a performance of the theme from the movie The Patriot which featured a line up of 14 "all-star" piccolo players. We had a lot of fun! I was again impressed with Sarah's beautiful playing.
I was delighted when I asked Sarah if she might be willing to come play a concert for the New York Flute Club and her response was a resounding, "Yes!". She'll have the opportunity to share her ability to make the piccolo convey music and beauty instead of fear!
To perform at the masterclass, please email Wendy Stern at firstname.lastname@example.org by December 31, 2016.
I hope to see a big turnout for this concert and, of course, I look forward to seeing you there!!
