Meanwhile in Sin City

Now hear this: "Go hear this!"

Las Vegas, NV, March 12, 2008. The Las Vegas Chamber Music Society announces a special presentation of Las Vegas flutist and Nevada Artist Fellow Karen Haid in a solo recital at Las Vegas Clark County Library's Performing Arts Center, 1401 E. Flamingo Rd. on Sunday, April 6th at 2 p.m. Inspiring her audiences "with style and fire" (American Record Guide) and with interpretations "gorgeously lyrical" (The Scene), she will perform works by Bach, Telemann, Ibert, and Paganini.

Lauded as "a chamber music superstar” (Richmond News Leader), Karen Haid has performed extensively as an orchestral player and has served on the faculties of Florida State University, Virginia Commonwealth University, and the University of Alaska. Laurels include the Coleman Chamber Music Award, a Certificate of Excellence from the Vienna International Music Competition, and top prizes in competitions sponsored by the National Flute Association. Karen Haid holds the Bachelor and Master of Music degrees from Boston University, a Diploma from the Juilliard School, and doctorates in both the flute and piano from Florida State University. Upon the release of her solo compact disc, The Music of Walter Gieseking (NI5696), the BBC
Music Magazine praised her as being "equally gifted on the piano and flute."

The Las Vegas Chamber Music Society was established in 2003 to meet the growing local need for quality chamber music concerts featuring local artists as well as an international array of the world's finest musicians.
In addition, the society is dedicated to establish opportunities for the young people to participate in master classes, perform in concert settings and attend performances. The Las Vegas Chamber Music Society is excited to produce and set new standards of performance for Las Vegas audiences.

The concert is free and open to the public, and is sponsored by the Las Vegas Chamber Music Society, Nevada Federal Credit Union, and has been funded, in part, by an Artist Fellowship award from the Nevada Arts Council, a state agency.
