100th birthday celebration, à la française


World-renowned French flutist, pianist, teacher and composer, Louis Moyse, passed away in 2007, just a few weeks short of his 95th birthday. Five years later, on Bastille Day, I and other of his former students from all over the world gathered in his home village of St. Amour, France. We presented a gala concert of his works as his 100th birthday present to the people of St. Amour.

In advance of the festive events, I designed and posted a blog as a place to share memories of the man who was mentor, friend and inspiration to so many flutists and other musicians the world over. Click here to read more.

Collaboration in the arts

Designing and producing a chamber music residency

In partnership with state and local arts councils, communities, educational institutions and a major corporation, this weeklong chamber music residency brought the world-renowned Ying Quartet to a culturally underserved region of North Carolina.

Events ranged from informal concerts and lecture-demonstrations, to student master classes and appearances at community and senior centers. The week was capped off by a full public recital. I enjoyed interfacing closely with the artists and their management representatives.
