Nyack College Flutist Plays for Sir James Galway
Nyack College School of Music (SOM) flute performance major, Luis Diaz II, a student at the flute studio of Nyack professor, Dr. Marie Herseth Kenote, was one of only three students chosen to perform in a flute masterclass with virtuoso flute player, Sir James Galway. This showcase took place in New York City at the Lucy Moses School on March 26, 2014 (Click here for overview).
Sir Galway allowed the Nyack junior (pictured above) to play his 20K Gold Nagahara flute to perform the virtuosic piece by Eugene Bozza "Image" for solo flute. This prestigious moment came with the bonus of Luis receiving "nuggets of gold" for flute performance from the legendary musician from Belfast, Ireland.
Says Nyack's proud mentoring professor, Dr. Kenote, “Truly this was an opportunity of a lifetime and a blessing from the Lord!”
