Erie Philharmonic to host mini-residency with flutist Demarre McGill

Posted on: November 9, 2016

On November 11, Pennsylvania’s Erie Philharmonic will bring Demarre McGill, acting principal flute at the Metropolitan Opera and former principal flute at the Dallas Symphony, to town for a day of educational events followed by a solo appearance in Mozart’s Flute Concerto. McGill will visit a fifth-grade music class at Erie’s Wayne Elementary School, where he will relate his early experience playing in the Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestra. He then heads to radio station WQLN, where he’ll give a free public performance and discuss his background with “Morning Classics” host Brian Hannah. McGill will also give a two-hour master class with flute students from Edinboro University in Edinboro, PA, located about twenty miles south of Erie. The Erie Philharmonic’s Saturday evening concert, entitled “Classical Rivalries,” features McGill in the Mozart Concerto paired with Antonio Salieri’s Sinfonia Veneziana.
