Have you ever wondered what the preparation for a concerto is like, as compared to orchestra life? Powell Artist Adam Walker, fresh off a tour playing Principal flute with his band- The London Symphony Orchestra, took a few moments to chat with us in New York City. Just a few hours before boarding a plane for New Zealand, Adam sat down with us to give us a few words of wisdom for first time Concerto performers. Once in New Zealand, he will perform John Corigliano’s Concerto for Flute and Orchestra, “Pied Piper Fantasy”, with the Auckland Philharmonia. To find out more about the upcoming Nov. 5th performance, follow this link: http://apo.co.nz/concert-events/fairytales
Master classes have the power to touch our musical lives in a very intense and memorable way. We’ve all been to inspirational classes which we remember to today. Powell Artist Jean Ferrandis recently gave a master class sponsored by Ithaca College and Powell Flutes on September 12th. The level of the performers not only impressed us, but also Jean Ferrandis. All four performers are students of Dr. Wendy Mehne at the Ithaca College School of Music, one of the nation’s top music schools.
As many of us head back to school and work, it’s a good time to reflect on summer adventures.
