Flute image I have played the flute for over fifty years. As an undergraduate I was principal flutist of the
M.I.T. Symphony, with which I appeared as soloist in a performance of the flute concerto of Carl Nielsen.

From 1975-80 I was principal flutist of the York (Pa.) Symphony, and in 1984 I performed the Prokofiev sonata
   and excerpts from Claude Bolling's Suite for Flute and Jazz Piano in
   a joint recital with my wife at the Institute for Advanced Study,

   I have also performed in woodwind quintets and flute ensembles on
   various occasions
