    S2, Ep. 15 - Storytime: The Stories of Composer Christopher Caliendo

    S2, Ep. 15 - Storytime: The Stories of Composer Christopher Caliendo

    One day, I was sitting in a diner eating breakfast, by myself, at the 2003 NFA convention in Las Vegas and the rest is history. Christopher Caliendo has composed four out of 13 Sonatas for me and I am honored to call him a friend. Listen to stories behind this composer's works and how his career in music took a turn after returning from composing for the Vatican. It's the story of the "Great American Flute Sonata." https://www.christophercaliendo.com/

    S2, Ep. 14 - Stay Well Play Well: Spiritual Sustenance

    I'm calling it Source. I'm featuring my CD "In Translation" the tracks from Bach's C minor Cello Suite, and I'm reading words from Kahlil Gibran "The Prophet" , "A Course in Miracles" and CS Lewis. Plus, you'll hear about my journey from growing up in Unitarianism to being baptized as an adult in the Episcopal Church since 1997 . As Gibran puts it, you're my friend on the roadside. May the voice within my voice speak to the ear of your ear.

    S2, Ep. 11 - Business 101: Who's Managing Whom?

    We're calling this episode "Who’s Managing Whom?" I will be speaking about the aspect of having “made it”, and if having a manager, media specialist, or PR person is actually necessary in order to “make it.” We’re featuring Nicole Riccardo from NR Media to help us figure it all out.

Karmen Gould ,

An inspiring resource for ALL flutists!

Amy Porter is a brilliant flutist and inspiring teacher. I love this podcast she created. One of Amy’s strengths as an educator is her ability to bring her understanding of the bigger picture to her teaching. This is a great resource full of inspiration for the well-rounded flutist!

A Wonderful Podcast by a well-known Flutist!

What I find amazing about this podcast is that it was released shortly after everything shut down for the pandemic. It could not have come in a more perfect time because there are so many flutists like me who are looking for inspiration. Ms. Porter has always been one of those flutists whose recordings I go back to time and time again on YouTube. To be able hear the insights of this wonderful flutist and to get a sense of Ms. Porter is amazing! I am looking forward to hearing more episodes!
