UUFCC Young Artists Concert Series – Ay Kawasaki, flute

Sunday, May 26th, at 3pm

Ay Kawasaki, a flutist from State College, will perform a recital at 3 p.m. on Sunday, May 26, on our Young Artists Concert Series. Ay studied flute here with Diane Gold Toulson, Agatha Wang, and Dr. Naomi Seidman. She is now a flute performance major at McGill University in Montreal. She will be assisted in this program by pianist Erik Clayton and guitarist Matthew Wherley. One piece on her program will be a composition for flute and piano by Luisa Bressan, a State College composer. Ay will select a charity to benefit from donations received as admission for the recital. You are invited to attend this program to support a young artist and her chosen charity.
