Hope you’ll get to know my new book, Notes for Flutists: A Guide to the Repertoire. It offers, in a single volume, contextual and analytical information about 35 of the best-known pieces in the flute repertoire and is available in hardcover and paperback through Amazon, Carolyn Nussbaum Music Company, and all major booksellers. I hope flutists will find it a valuable resource for learning about our favorite pieces.

My second new publication is an edition of Joachim Andersen’s long out-of-print Concertstück, Op. 3. It’s an important, virtuoso work that served as the Paris Conservatory’s concours piece in 1895. This is my third collaboration with Zimmermann Music Publishers, and the publication recently won the National Flute Association’s 2017 Newly Published Music Competition.

With my December 13th recital with pianist Terree Lee Shofner-Emrich at the Peoria Riverfront Museum now over and pre-concert talks for the Chicago Symphony done until April 19th-21st, I’m now looking forward to a recital with the “Downstate Damsels” at Chicago’s Fourth Presbyterian Church on Michigan Avenue on Jan. 5th, a guest appearance on Michael Hull’s faculty recital at Bradley University on March 4th, and a Peoria Chamber Players recital as part of the Trinity Concert Series on April 8th.
