This concert for flute and narrator has a theme of nature with pieces based on birds, flowers, trees, and animals.  Two works are loosely based on fairy tales.  Alan Ridout’s piece “The Emperor and the Bird of Paradise” tells the story of an Emperor and his sad bird of paradise.  Composer Wendy Hiscocks wrote “Keshovati” which is based on a fairy tale from India about a young boy who decides to morph himself into a champa flower high up in the tree. From that vantage point he imagines himself gleefully watching his mother go about her all-too familiar daily routine all the time being hidden from view.

The piece “Trees” by Daniel Dorff is based on the familiar poem by Joyce Kilmer and “Half Moon at Checkerboard Mesa” by composer Phillip Bimstein is a fantasy for flute, frogs, crickets, and coyotes with a computer generated accompaniment.   

Admission is free and all are welcome to attend!
