Susan Glaser, Flutist, to Give a Masterclass at U.Va.

March 3, 2000 -- On Monday, March 6, at 7:45 p.m., Susan Glaser will give a flute masterclass in Old Cabell Hall. This masterclass is free and open to the public.

The students participating in the masterclass are Andrea Henderson playing Roussel's Joueurs de Flute. April Park will be playing Ibert's Concerto, Carolyn Chen playing Frank Martin's Ballade and Sylvia Schaefer will be playing Schubert's Theme and Variations. All of these students are from the studio of Margaret Newcomb.

Susan Glaser has performed to great critical acclaim throughout the United States and in Europe and Latin America. The recipient of a Fulbright Grant for study in Vienna, Glaser has also won prizes in the National Flute Association's Young Musicians Competition. She has championed new music throughout her career and has commissioned and premiered new works by George Tsontakis, Tristan Keuris, Urs Leimgruber and Amanda Harberg.

Glaser's principal teachers have been Julius Baker, Geoffrey Gilbert and Peter Lloyd. She holds the Doctor of Music degree from the Julliard School and currently serves on the faculty of Columbia University Teachers College. The New Yorker says of her performances: "An extraordinarily high level of conviction, thought and display ... trills, flutterings and multiple tones flew from the lips of Susan Glaser."

This masterclass is made possible in part by a generous donation from the Branneon-Cooper Fund.
