Flutist Eugenia Zukerman Solos with Hopkins Symphony

World-renowned flutist, author and television commentator Eugenia Zukerman will join the Hopkins Symphony Orchestra in late April for two events: a master class on Friday, April 21, at noon, and concert on Saturday, April 22, at 8 p.m. Both events are open to the public and take place in Shriver Hall Auditorium on the Johns Hopkins University Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles St. in Baltimore.

During the master class, Zukerman will coach student flutists from Johns Hopkins University and Goucher College. Performing will be Alison Dagger and Gregory Peacock from Goucher, and Whitney Shaffer, Joelle Sohn, and John Zuckerman from Johns Hopkins. Admission is free.

The next evening, after a free pre-concert discussion at 7 p.m., Zukerman will join HSO music director Jed Gaylin and the orchestra for two works: Moise Vainberg’s Concerto for Flute and String Orchestra in D Minor and Charles Tomlinson Griffes’ “Poem for Flute and Orchestra.” Also on the program are Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Russian Easter Overture” and Claude Debussy’s masterpiece “La Mer.” While Griffes’ piece is a standard of the flute repertoire, Zukerman has been championing Vainberg’s works, which were little known outside the Soviet Union during his lifetime. Vainberg (1919-1996) was a close friend of Dimitri Shostakovich and shared a similar musical style.

Tickets for the April 22 concert are $10 general admission and $8 for seniors (60 or older), students and Johns Hopkins University affiliates. Tickets are free for students with a valid JHU ID.

In addition to performing all over the world, Zukerman directs the Vail Valley Music Festival, has recorded for five labels, and serves on the faculty of New York University’s Department of Music and Performing Arts. She has been published in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Esquire and Vogue. Her latest book is In My Mother’s Closet, an anthology of essays about accomplished women’s thoughts on the mother-daughter relationship. Zukerman has been arts correspondent for CBS Sunday Morning since 1981.

Now completing its 24th season, the Hopkins Symphony Orchestra is a university-community orchestra that performs a full annual series of symphonic, chamber, children’s, and community concerts. Jed Gaylin has been music director since 1993. For information about all HSO events, call 410-516-6542, e-mail hso@jhu.edu , or visit http://www.jhu.edu/jhso.

HSO programs are supported by a grant from the Maryland State Arts Council, an agency funded by the State of Maryland and the National Endowment for the Arts.
