Our featured guests of the day are flutist LeeAnn McKenna and pianist Art McManus.
A native Rhode Islander, Ms. McKenna, now Cape Cod resident, had the great privilege to work with some of the greatest classical flute players of the 20th and 21st centuries: Jean Pierre Rampal, Julius Baker (New York Philharmonic), Mindy Kaufmann (New York Philharmonic), Carol Wincenc, Lois Schaeffer (Boston Symphony Orchestra), Michael Hasel (Berlin Philharmonic), and Donald Peck (Chicago Symphony).
She has performed throughout Europe and much of the East and West coasts on the US, as well as two tours to Puerto Rico as a soloist, orchestral player, and in chamber music settings. LeeAnn maintains an active performance schedule in her "adopted" home state, Oregon, where she attended graduate school and resided for that past 21 years.
LeeAnn has always considered Cape Cod to be the "Jewel of New England", and, when choosing a new home, closer to her two Eastern-time-zone sons, considered it the prime location to develop a new musical life and community, and expand teaching and performing opportunities.
LeeAnn continues to perform throughout the Pacific Northwest and records with the Red Lantern Ensemble (a small chamber group presenting a wide variety of music and ensemble types) and Thousand Waves (flute, classical guitar, Japanese koto, bass, and percussion), an ensemble presenting a variety of styles of music from jazz to tangos, renaissance to modern, Japanese to Irish, and much more. She can also be heard at St. Christopher's Episcopal Church in Chatham and occasionally at the Cape Cod Jazz Jam. She is also a new member of the Tri-County Symphonic Band In Marion, Massachusetts.
Art McManus, musical director and pianist, a teacher and performer who worked in the New York area for more than 20 years before he moved to Cape Cod.
