Convention Report

As we had previously reported, last week we headed northeast to our nation’s capital to attend the National Flute Association Convention. We met many, many very nice people (Colleen Law and I are chatting in the photo above), of whom a good number expressed support and admiration for our project. We also received a number of excellent suggestions (al- ready communicated to our composers) about other types of solo and ensemble music that flutists would be interested in seeing in our catalog.

Our Artists in the News

Clarinetist and Cayambis artist Maurita Marx performed on a recital with guitarist Pablo Romero Lui on July 25 at the Inter- national Clarinet Association Convention in Madrid, Spain. Meanwhile, the Ondas Ensemble has just released their performance schedule for fall 2015 that includes concerts in Chicago and Evanston. The Khemia Ensemble is currently in Argentina, where they are performing a series of concerts in and around Cordoba.

Student Corner

Are you a music student? Would you like to stand out of the crowd at your next audition, lesson, jury or recital? We have a great selection of works that you might be interested in playing. For flute, why don’t you consider Robles’s Dos Miniaturas for flute and piano? It’s one of our most popular titles! Or, how about Cantos veloces, by Luis Ernesto Gómez, for unaccompanied clarinet? String players will like Six Miniatures for viola and piano, by Armando Luis Ramírez.
