Articles in NFA Quarterly and Flute Talk

The NFA Quarterly, summer 2015, featured my article, “Collaborative Play” celebrating the process of commissioning new repertoire.  Collaborations between composer Huw Watkins and flutist Adam Walker, composer Gabriela Lena Frank and flutist Mary Kay Fink, and composer Behzad Ranjbaran and flutists Jeffrey Khaner are featured.

Flute Talk, January 2015, featured my article and interview with acclaimed composer and Pulitzer Prize winner Shulamit Ran.  Ran also created the new work for flute and piano in celebration of the Chicago Flute Club’s 25th anniversary Birds of Paradise which was premiered at the National Flute Association’s Annual Convention in Chicago.
