We are especially pleased to announce that this season’s Artist Concert will feature the extraordinary talented flautist Judy Dines. Judy demonstrates a virtuosity and level of musicianship that truly places her in the ranks of today’s top soloists. Her program will display the range of literature for the flute—from the Baroque to the Contemporary.

Judy has been a member of the Houston Symphony since 1992. She attended Temple University and the Peabody Institute before coming to Houston.

She is a very active performer in Houston and beyond. Locally, she is a frequent performer in the Greenbriar Consortium, a diverse chamber group made up of Houston Symphony members and other musicians in the Houston area. She was also a member and frequent soloist with the former Houston Chamber Symphony. Other local groups Ms. Dines has played with include Mukuru, Aperio and the St. Cecilia Society.

Outside of Houston, Ms. Dines is a member of the Ritz Chamber Players, a dynamic chamber ensemble that performs all around the country. She is also a member of the Grand Teton Music Festival Orchestra, which convenes every summer in beautiful Jackson Hole, WY. Several times, most recently in Aug. 2008, she has performed at the National Flute Association Convention, a four-day extravaganza that celebrates the flute. In the orchestral world, Ms Dines has performed with the National Symphony Orchestra, the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra, and the Chautauqua Symphony Orchestra.

She will be accompanied by pianist Rodney Waters. A virtuosic performer in his own right, Rodney earned his Bachelor and Master of Music degrees from the Mannes College of Music in New York, where he studied chamber music with Felix Galimir and piano with Leon Pommers and Richard Goode. Goode describes Waters as “a musician-pianist of extraordinary sensitivity and depth. His versatility and fluency are as remarkable as his interpretive gifts.” He has performed as soloist and chamber musician in such venues as Carnegie Hall, Weill Recital Hall (New York), Orchestra Hall (Detroit) and Asahi Recital Hall (Tokyo). Summer appearances include the Round Top Festival in Texas, Music Academy of the West in Santa Barbara, California, and the Toga and Takefu festivals in Japan. In Houston he performs regularly with Context and the Houston Symphony. From 1992 to 2001 he served as a staff pianist at the Shepherd School of Music of Rice University.

This year’s Artist Concert on Sunday, April 30, at 4:00, will be the perfect conclusion to our season. The venue will be the acoustically superb sanctuary of St. John the Divine Espiscopal Church, 2450 River Oaks Blvd. in Houston. A meet-and-greet reception will follow in the Fellowship Hall. Please make plans to attend this rare opportunity to hear Judy in recital, and please invite all your friends.
