Goodman, principal flutist of the West Virginia Symphony Orchestra, will be the
guest artist for the Department of Music’s annual FluteWorks from 9 a.m. to 5
p.m. Saturday, Jan. 21, in the Jomie Jazz Center.
“As always, there will be lots of playing for all participants throughout the day at FluteWorks,” said Dr. Wendell Dobbs, professor of flute, who is coordinating the event. “Mark your calendars and don’t miss this day of truly extraordinary flute playing.”
The event is designed for all flutists from Grade 6 through college level, Dobbs said. Cost is $20 per participant, payable at the registration Jan. 21. Lunch is included in the registration fee.
Highlighting the morning will be a master class conducted by Goodman, at which several student flutists will play.
Other activities during the day will include rehearsals for the Thunder Flute Ensemble, made up of FluteWorks participants; a performance of electroacoustic music by Goodman, and a performance of Lowell Liebermann’s flute and guitar sonata by Dobbs and Júlio Alves, assistant professor of guitar at Marshall. The closing concert, featuring the Thunder Flute Ensemble, will take place at 4 p.m. at the Jomie Jazz Center.
Goodman will also perform at Marshall at 8 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 19, in Smith Music Hall on the Huntington campus, with pianist Robert Frankenberry. The two artists make up a duo called “Chrysalis,” which is named for a work composed by Gilda Lyons that they commissioned and which will be performed Jan. 19.
