Recently, on Nov 24, 2014, the fantastic flutist Peg Cornils stepped in front of the NIU orchestra, under the baton of Lucia Matos, to premiere the new three-movement concerto Fluting Around. It was a rousing success, and both Peg and I hope to introduce the work to other orchestras and venues this coming year. In addition to her metal orchestral flute, Peg also performs on a Native American wooden flute for the concerto's second movement. The rich sound of the wood flute, combined with the orchestra, was entrancing. Special thanks again to Peg, Lucia, Rich Holly and the NIU Philharmonic for the wonderful world premiere on that very, very snowy night in DeKalb IL! Please enjoy a couple photos from the dress rehearsal.
