Native American Heritage Month Concert
In honor of Native American Heritage Month, world flutist Gary Stroutsos and Everett Public Library present a concert of Native American music from a variety of tribes. This free concert will be performed at 2 p.m. Saturday November 19 in the Everett Public Library Auditorium, 2702 Hoyt Avenue in Everett. There is no charge to attend.
Originally trained as a Jazz flutist, Stroutsos plays a variety of world styles, including Chinese, and Cuban. He has become best known, however, for his haunting work on the Native American flute, which he learned through journeying through many indigenous American cultures. He has worked and recorded with many Native American artists, including Navajo flute maker and Elder Paul Thompson. Stroutsos’s works express the enduring legacy of the Native American flute and its recent reintroduction into today’s society.
Stroutsos has performed in concerts throughout the United States, Japan, and Korea. His CDs Distant Shores, Winds of Honor, The Native Heart, and Echoes of Canyon de Chelley, with Thompson, have received national acclaim as benchmark recordings of Native American flute music. He has appeared on the soundtrack of Ken Burns’s Lewis and Clark: Journey of the Corps of Discovery, which led to a command performance at the White House for President Bill Clinton. He also has appeared on numerous other radio and television programs.
