Looking ahead to April, rather than our usual meeting, we will be
going on a field trip, with Arvel Bird visiting Rochester. We'll be
attending the Flute Circle Workshop and Rochester Chamber Orchestra
events. You should reserve your seat early! Arvel Bird's concert with
the Rochester Chamber Orchestra last year was absolutely amazing!
We will NOT be holding our regular meeting in April.

Arvel Bird Returns!
April 17, 2011, 3:00PM
Hochstein Performance Hall
Brilliant Native-American violinist and composer, Arvel Bird, returns
by popular request after a highly successful concert with the RCO last
season. In addition to the violin, Bird also plays a variety of Native
American Flutes. His music reflects his dual heritage of the Paiute
tribe in Utah on his mother’s side, and on his father’s side, the
Scottish tradition. He conveys through words and music, Native
American wisdom, the essence of animals, and the spirit of the earth
on which we live. He mesmerizes his audience with his violin, flute
and powerful story telling. And he does all of this with eloquence,
conviction, and inspiration.
These will be some great Native American flute events with Arvel Bird
in Rochester next month! Hope to see you there!
