WE thought you might like to know more about the guest artist for our 
December concerts, flutist Karen Kevra:
Karen Kevra has won attention as one of the country's outstanding flutists
through her distinctive warm and extroverted performances and has been
hailed as "having a musical focus and depth seen in few flutists anywhere."
Kevra's recording of Works for Flute and Piano by Louis Moyse along with
pianist Paul Orgel earned a 2003 Grammy nomination and accolades from
numerous American reviewers.  Romantic Music for Flute and Piano, her latest
CD with pianist Jeffrey Chappell, was praised by flutist Sir James Galway,
and the Boston Musical Intelligencer for "sublimely satisfying
flute-playing." Kevra has performed throughout the United States, Canada,
and Europe including performances at Carnegie Hall, the French Embassy in
Washington, DC, and on French National Television, and has shared the stage
with members of the Emerson and Talich String Quartets, the Paris Piano
Trio, Borromeo String Quartet, Boston Chamber Music Society, and Trey
Anastasio of Phish. Kevra is the founder and Artistic Director of Capital
City Concerts of Montpelier, Vermont.
