Eric Maul has enjoyed a wild and unorthodox career as a flutist, appearing as a recitalist, chamber musician, freelance flutist, and teacher. He has performed in concert halls such as the Meyerhoff and Jordan Hall. He can be heard on numerous recordings on the Naxos label. Eric was a founding member of a unique ensemble consisting of soprano, flute, harp, and viola; Encanto Ensemble. In the past, he was able to premiere works by composers such as Joshua Armenta, Frances Pollack, Douglass Buchanan, and Stephen Yip.
All this came to a rather abrupt halt when Eric decided he needed to put the flute away and ask himself some hard questions. It was the right decision and allowed him to take the time he needed to recover.
Now back after a two year hiatus, Eric has had the opportunity to collaborate with queer artists and projects such as Brian Calhoon’s ‘Marimba Cabaret’, the gay folksinging duo, Donnolly and Richard, and Cher-impersonator, Thirsty Burlington. Most recently, he will perform with Fredrick Jodry on ‘The Beauty of Baroque’, featuring the music of the gay flute playing monarch of Prussia, Fredrick the Great.
Eric earned a BM at the Peabody Institute of Johns Hopkins University, where he was a student of Marina Piccinini and recipient of the Britton Johnson Memorial Flute Prize. He also holds a MM from the New England Conservatory where he studied with Paula Robison and was a StoryTelling Fellow through the Community Performances and Partnerships. Other teachers include Laurie Sokoloff, former piccolo of the Baltimore Symphony, and Melinda Wade-English, retired soloist of the Army Field Band. For more info visit: https://ericmaulflute.com
John Thomas (photo Antonia Keteneva) has been a well-known creative artist in Provincetown and Cape Cod for three decades. He is a pianist, concert producer, music director, composer and actor. John has produced the “Great Music on Sundays @5” concert series at the Unitarian Universalist Meeting House of Provincetown for more than decades with more than 350 concerts and hundreds of performers. In 2020 and 2021 the concert season was presented online; live concerts will return in 2022. He was awarded a Bulgarian Fulbright Commission grant for study, research and performance for his project “Music without Borders: Bulgaria and America in Melody, Harmony and Rhythm”. He subsequently produced the video concert series “Music without Borders” at the Provincetown Theater, which was featured on Mindy Todd’s NPR program “The Point”.
