Carol has been very active as usual …
Let us mention her Life Time Achievement Award she received from the National Flute Association in August 2011 and Music Distinguished Alumni Award from the Manhattan School of Music in October 2011.
She recorded Henryk Gorecki’s Concerto for flute and orchestra, of which she is the dedicatee, with the Warsaw Philharmonic in September 2011 (Naxos label) and a new CD of all American music for flute and string quartet (Arthur Foote, Joan Tower and Amy Beach) with the Green Mountain Chamber Players.
She tours with the New York Wind Quintet and performed in Houston for the Houston Friends of Music this last Tuesday January 17, 2012. She gave a master class there on Wednesday.
FINALLY!! After several years in the making, my new CD, “Gobo” is out!! Featuring several wonderful new (or newish) pieces by Russell Pinkston, Diane Thome, Joseph Landers, and Nancy Galbraith, and Jenni Brandon; performances by Kristin Wolfe Jensen, Susan Hatch Tomkiewicz, Sheryl Cohen, Rebekah Heller, and Robert S Freeman. It should be available on i-tunes via Naxos in another month or so. In the meantime, for anyone wanting a copy right away, contact Evan Leslie at the Butler School of Music at UT: email@example.com
Founded in 2010 with four core members, QUARTUS CHAMBER PLAYERS is a chamber music ensemble dedicated to making classical chamber music more widely accessible by bringing intimate and educational performances to concert halls and alternative venues. In its inaugural season, Quartus was invited to perform with Houston Chamber Choir on three sold-out Christmas concerts at the Villa de Matel, made its radio debut on Houston Public Radio’s The Front Row, toured in San Antonio for two lunch time concerts, partnered with Classical Revolution Houston for an afternoon concert at the Ginger Man, and gave three near-capacity performances in downtown Houston. Quartus also began its Quartus in the Classroom educational program in Sheldon ISD and Cy-Fair ISD this year and brought its Quartus in the Community outreach program to the Houston Area Suzuki String Association (HASSA) and a few retirement communities.
Quartus continues its mission and will bring classical chamber music to audiences in the upcoming season with exciting collaborations and programing. To be added to Quartus’ mailing list, email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
