Acclaimed New York Philharmonic Orchestra flutist to visit Loyola

April 18, 2008

This weekend, famed teacher and principal flutist of the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, Robert Langevin, will delight music goers by presenting a flute educational masterclass and solo concert.

The masterclass takes place at Loyola University New Orleans, Satur­day, April 19, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., in room 230 of the Communications/Music Complex on Loyola’s main campus. Langevin will work with three Louisiana student flutists who will perform the music of Hue, CPE Bach and Muczynski. The final hour of the masterclass will be an informational session on how flutists can improve their tone and technique. The masterclass will end with a question and answer session.

Langevin will also perform a solo recital featuring the music of Franck, Faure and Debussy, at 7 p.m., at St. Charles Avenue Presbyterian Church, located at State Street and St. Charles Avenue.

Among flutists in North America, Robert Langevin is distinguished as being one of the strongest links to the French school of flute playing with his tonal concepts, performance style and pedagogical lineage. His many solo and orchestral performances have been spotlighted on international stages throughout the world, as well as in the United States and Canada. In recent years, Langevin has served as the principal flutist with the Pittsburgh Symphony. Langevin currently teaches at the Julliard School and Manhattan School of Music in New York City and has performed as principal flutist with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra since 2000.

Admission to the masterclass and concert is free and open to the public.
