BPA welcomes flute musician Gary Stroutsos
November 16, 2012 · 9:41 AM
Bainbridge Performing Arts presents “Native American Flute and Storytelling” at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 16.
Gary Stroutsos, a renowned Seattle musician, will present an evening of improvisational flute music and time-honored stories for one night only at BPA.
The intersection of narrative and music emerges from Stroutsos’ deep appreciation of Native American culture and his belief that voice and melody combine to reflect the heart of the music.
Stroutsos is an international performer, composer and educator whose music is drawn from a variety of world cultures; including Native American, Asian and American Jazz. His soundtrack work on the Ken Burns "Lewis & Clark" documentary led to a command performance at the White House for President Clinton, and his performance and recording work in sacred spaces has taken him from Buddhist temples in the mountains of central Japan to the depths of New Mexico's Canyon de Chelley National Monument.
Tickets are $12 for adults and $8 for seniors, students, youth, military and teachers, and may be purchased online at www.bainbridgeperformingarts.org, 206-842-8569 or in person at BPA.
