Gary Stroutsos on Native American Flute, October 12th

On October 12th, Classical Tuesdays is delighted to present Gary Stroutsos.

Gary's music was showcased in the Ken Burns PBS documentary “Lewis and Clark: Journey of the Corps of Discovery”, which led to a command performance at the White House for President Bill Clinton.

A Greek-Italian American, Gary has made a distinctive contribution to the preservation of American Indian music and culture. He plays with some of the finest American Indian artists working today, including collaborating with Navajo flute maker Paul Thompson. Gary's body of work expresses the enduring legacy of the American Indian flute and its recent revitalization in today’s society.

Gary has released over 20 recordings in a lengthy career. He says, "Listening to cultural elders tell stories, discovering a world of ancient and modern flutes and then retelling the stories and playing the flutes for audiences in concerts and classrooms has been my life for the past thirty years."
