Music Professor Sheridon Stokes to be Featured at National Flute Association and to Perform at 15th Annual Chamber Music on the Mountain

August 9th, 2016 · No Comments


Flute Professor Sheridon Stokes has forwarded some information about his activities this summer, which will be of interest to flute and wind instrument fans.

First, he is being featured in the opening concert of the National Flute Association in San Diego. He will be playing flute solos from movies in which his playing was featured, with a 250 piece flute orchestra (a LOT of flutes). The orchestra will be conducted by Peter Sheridahn, a former DMA student of Stokes at UCLA who now teaches at Melbourne University.

Second, he will be featured in the second concert offered at the 15th annual Chamber Music on the Mountain. Here is information directly from the concert producer:

Second Concert ? 3 PM SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, 2016
Featuring Sheridon Stokes, flute; Joseph Gold, violin; Karl Albrecht, viola;
Annie Harkey-Power, cello

We are delighted that Sheridon Stokes is again returning from his Southern California home and Joe Gold is coming once again from the San Francisco Bay area. Sheridon was probably the most-recorded movie studio flutist and a special treat this year is his bass flute solo rendition of the solos he played in Mel Brooks? film ?Men in Tights? AND his flute and string trio arrangements of songs from three of the big movies in which he played solos: ?Out of Africa?, ?Mission Impossible?, and ?Titanic?. Of course, the concert is mostly classical chamber music and will include a Mozart flute quartet, a Paganini string trio, and other works yet to be decided.

Sheridon is coming here straight from concerts he is giving in China. Joe Gold is coming after his concerts in Spain. As you know, Joe was a Heifetz student and is a fabulous violinist. They will be joined by Karl Albrecht, who commutes between the Seattle area and Los Angeles for engagements and stellar local performer Annie Harkey-Power. Both of these were very impressive in previous performances at these concerts.
