Fluting With Ken Grant

I got to flute with Ken Grant last night.

Ken was at Azusa Pacific University this week as Artist in Residence.

His usual habitat is the Eastman School of Music and the Rochester Philharmonic as principal clarinetist.

We got to play a lot of great music together.

Here we are rehearsing "Appalachian Spring" before the concert:

Ken premiered "Sabar Moves" by Jed Koops.

This is Jed at the rehearsal:

Ken also performed the Trio in a minor, Opus 114 with School of Music Dean Duane Funderburk on piano....

...and cellist Jonathan Thomson:

Bassoonist Rufus Olivier of Quintet fame joined in the fun.

Here we are rehearsing the Stravinski Octet:

Ken and I celebrated after a successful concert.

I'm already looking forward to next year's visit!
