Join the Song of the Angels Flute Orchestra, conducted by Michael Armstrong, at their first concert of the New Year on Sunday February 23, 2014 at 4:30pm, St. James’ in the City at 3903 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles. This winter’s concert will premiere a composition by Ladd McIntosh, Suite for Flute Orchestra, written specifically for the Song of the Angels Flute Orchestra and conducted by the composer himself. Ladd McIntosh, the lead orchestrator for Harry Gregson-Williams, has worked on 125 films as an orchestrator.
Featured on this winter concert will be David Shostac, Principal Flute of the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra and acclaimed movie recording artist. Shostac will dazzle you with his performance of Saint-Saens’ “Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso” (originally for violin) and will also be presenting his arrangements of some other very exciting pieces.
Eugenia Zukerman, acclaimed flutist, international artist and Arts Correspondent for CBS Sunday Morning, will also be a featured soloist in this concert performing “Poem” by Charles Griffes. Ms. Zukerman will also join Shostac in a performance of Shostac’s arrangement of the Bach Double Violin Concerto in D minor. This is a collaboration you won’t want to miss! In reviewing the Vivaldi CD, Ms. Zukerman wrote “Shostac’s range of colors, his embellishments and his gorgeous tone are simply astonishing.”
In addition to the presentations with the featured soloists the Song of the Angels Orchestra will also be performing Mendelssohn’s Hebrides Overture and Vaughn Williams’ Fantasy on a Theme by Thomas Tallis.
We look forward to seeing you at the concert!
