Credo Flute 2015 was a huge success in its inaugural season. Bonnie Boyd, Tadeu Coelho, and I were especially thrilled to have Wally Kujala join us for a special session. Pictured below is Peter Slowik, Director of Credo, along with flutists Lauren Asimakoupoulos, Jean Lee, and Izzy Hance, my stalwart assistant. Twenty-seven flutists joined us on the campus of Elmhurst College for a week of learning and exploring music and faith together. It was an inspired time. More news to come!
Upcoming Concerts and Events
Repost from @chambermusicamerica
It's usually around this time that I shut down my socials, so that I can be present for my loved ones and my faith during the Christmas season. I just have to close 2021 with a thank you to @2nd_fiddle and @chicagotribune for including @eartaxifestival among this illustrious list of Chicago artists and events. (Link in bio) In retrospect, it honestly feels like a minor miracle that the festival was able to launch over the span of approximately 4 months in between delta and omicron variants, but I'm so incredibly grateful that we all had that time to celebrate our community together. Looking forward to seeing everyone and more great art and music in 2022!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️
So thrilled to see the amazing artists highlighted in this year's Chicagoans of the Year in the @chicagotribune ! @aphorismstudios_ @angeltheoracle @kartemquin and more! As always, the ever insightful @2nd_fiddle truly hit the nail on the head. ❤️
Launching a new series in a venue as stunning as the Epiphany Center for the Arts is a thrill, and I'm so grateful to David Chase, @themikejeffers, and Kerry Sheehan for making it happen! Tonight marks the last performance of this concert program with a free concert at Elmhurst University's Irion Hall - Buik Recital Hall at 7pm, part of our ongoing residency at Elmhurst University. (Students can receive MUS 100 credit!) I'll be sad when this concert closes, but grateful as always to perform with musicians I love and admire. (PC: @gabbierona, flutist extraordinaire)
Posing for Dolly and Murph! ❤️❤️❤️
@picosamusic is in the midst of our first season concerts since the pandemic began in 2020, and we are kicking it off with a new ongoing series at @epiphanyarts201 Epiphany Center for the Arts. On December 5th, come by before (or stay after) the show for pub-style dinner offerings at the café bar, and then join the 5:30 tour of this phenomenal new venue with @themikejeffers. This West Loop jewel is seriously among my favorite spots in Chicago. At 6pm, come up to Sanctuary Hall for a sparkling and fun program or jump onto the livestream with the Superb Six of Picosa! Concert and livestream tickets are on sale, and student tix are $10. Performing musicians, it is worth your time to come check out this space. PHENOMENAL. <3 See you there! #chicagomusic #chambermusic #beethoven #shulamitran #gliere #joantower #debussy #faun #westloop #chicago
