FluteDaddy Trio at FAC and About First Fridays
On May 5 from 5:30PM to 7:30 PM FluteDaddy Trio will perform at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center for the first Friday celebration of Art.
Bassist Jason Crowe and newcomer guitarist Joe Gacioch will join me for some fresh jazz sounds. I will be playing my new, black, “electrified” flute, introduced at Motif Jazz Cafe last week, for the performance.
We will be in the Deco Lounge which has recently received an acoustical upgrade with the installation of sound conditioning panels. Here’s Jason and Joe at Ricos:
First Fridays – The Creative Experience
Preparing to play at FAC got me to thinking about the “First Friday” experience. Chances are you have been on the first Friday art walk, making the rounds of local galleries, seeing new art, often new entertainment and meeting friends old and new.
Perhaps I have met you there.
I’m the shy type. I have to push myself into connecting and conversing. And I am so glad I do. My contact with people at first Fridays has been enriching. I learn. I am inspired and I have some new friends.
I have recognized that when I engage first Friday, I tap into the very soul of creation. And, into the very soul of community. My experience is fulfilling! My experience is profoundly inspirational!
A large blue painting by Suz Stovall now hanging at the wonderful gallery G44 on 8th Street inspired my current project: A collection of modern jazz based on art that will be performed in early October 2017. The first piece, Blue Abstract #1. represents my initial and extended experience of engaging with her painting.
I encourage you to savor First Friday Art one Colorado Springs great cultural events.
If you are an artist – Go

FluteDaddy and the Trio hope to see you at FAC Friday May 5.
