Welcome to The New York Flute Club
Join Us for Our 97th Season (2016-2017)
Our stellar concert season continues with a concert by Sarah Frisof.
I first heard the flute playing of Sarah Frisof in Verbier, Switzerland, which is in the French speaking Valias canton of the Swiss alps. I was coaching at the Verbier Festival and Sarah was one of the flutists participating in the festival’s orchestra, made up of young musicians who are just starting their careers. The competition for this orchestra is at the highest level and auditions are held world-wide. Even in this group of high level musicians, Sarah’s playing stood out to me. Also, after getting to know her, I found her to be a wonderful, grounded person.
I was delighted to run in to Sarah about five years later at the National Association convention in Washington, DC. We were both performing on the closing gala concert where she performed Joel Puckett’s The Shadow of Sirius concerto with the United States Army Field Band. I was happy to see and hear her again. After hearing what competitions she had won and what her “flute path” had been (more on this in Anne Dearth's newsletter interview), I thought it would be great for the New York flute community to hear her playing and her story. Before playing her recital, Sarah will be giving a short workshop on competitions.
I hope to see a big turnout for this concert and of course, I’m looking forward to our annual holiday reception after the concert! Please let me know if you can bring something! Email me at email@example.com.
See you there!!
