Welcome to The New York Flute Club
Join Us for Our 2015-2016 Season
As your incoming president, I look forward to a wonderful new season. We start off with a concert in October curated by Mimi Stillman. The program is a tribute to the legacy of Julius Baker, in honor of his 100th birthday, and features the music of J.S. Bach, which was fundamental to Baker's career and teaching. Mimi Stillman is joined by Bart Feller in a performance of a Bach trio sonata. The performers will give New York premiers of seven new “inventions” inspired by Bach by a roster of distinguished composers including Andrea Clearfield, Richard Danielpour, Daniel Dorff, Jeremy Gill, Heidi Jacob, Jan Krzywicki, Robert Maggio, and James Primosch.
Our November concert features Alberto Almarza, a super-talented and versatile flutist who teaches at Carnegie Mellon University. His concert features world music played at the highest level. Christina Smith, principal flute of the Atlanta Symphony and one of America’s premier flutists, performs in December.
In January 2016, we pay tribute to Harold Jones, who passed away in January 2015. Harold’s dynamic personality is celebrated by his friends in the New York flute community. We are so happy that flute jazz legend, Hubert Laws, performs at this concert. In February, Yoobin Son plays her first solo NYFC concert since joining the New York Philharmonic as second flute.
In April, the New York Flute Fair is to be held at the beautiful Faculty House at Columbia University. The featured artist is Philippe Bernold, French flutist, conductor, and teacher at the Paris Conservatory. I hope he'll tell us some of his playing tips that have helped his students so consistently place in international flute competitions.
Mark your calendars. I look forward to seeing you at these wonderful events! Please come by to say “Hi” and let me know what you’d like to see the New York Flute Club present in coming years.
—Pat Zuber, president, The New York Flute Club
