Looking over the upcoming LiveARTS season, the realization dawns: this will be a season of friends, both old and new. Fourteen years ago when LiveARTS was just an idea in the minds of a few dreamers, a council of expert music professionals was formed to advise the dreamers of the practicability of their dream.
One of the counselors was flutist Linda Bento-Rei; officer in the Massachusetts Flute Association; leader of the Arlington Street Chamber Players; soloist; private teacher, one of whose students went on to study with James Galway. In other words, an artist and leader. Her advice was enthusiastic: go for it! So we did.
In the meantime, this longstanding friend and supporter has gone on to do wonderful work herself. Most recent is her Jongen project CD that has won exceptional notice. Linda Bento-Rei returns to LiveARTS to open the 2015-2016 season, along with her enormously talented partner--and new friend to LiveARTS--pianist Vytas Baksys, long associated with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. It is an honor to bring to the LiveARTS audience these two creative and original musicians.
