World flute master and cultural storyteller Gary Stroutsos will delight and inspire concert-goers when he brings his Music Without Borders performance to the Nicolet College Theatre at 7:30 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 8.
For nearly 20 years Stroutsos has traveled the country and various corners of the world seeking out ancestral and culturally rich locales to perform his music and also receive inspiration for future compositions and stories. “I have always believed that my music is earth music and that my stories speak of humankind,” Stroutsos said. “Music touches the soul, making it our true universal means of communication.”
Tickets for Music Without Borders are $10 and can be purchased online at www.nicoletlive.com or by calling the Nicolet Box Office at (715) 365-4646, 1-800-544-3039, ext. 4646; TDD (715) 365-4558, 711 relay.
Originally trained as a jazz flutist, Stroutsos’ work now features American Indian music and Chinese, Cuban and American Jazz stylings, reflecting his diverse musical influences. His audiences have the rare opportunity to hear ancient Chinese Bamboo flutes seldom heard outside the walls of China.
Stroutsos’ credits include performing for the documentary Lewis and Clark: Journey of the Corps of Discovery by noted filmmaker Ken Burns, giving a command performance at the White House for President Bill Clinton, and recording 25 albums.
