KU Wind Ensemble with special guest Jim Walker, flute

Description: Few other flutists in history have made such indelible marks in so many musical circles. From classical to conservatory to orchestral to jazz to pop, from television to film to the concert hall, Jim Walker has never met an audience that didn’t love his powerful, “stand and deliver” performances. Walker’s star began to rise when he was named Associate Principal Flute in the Pittsburgh Symphony, after a stint playing in the US Military Academy Band at West Point. Then, he won the principal flute position in the Los Angeles Philharmonic. After seven successful seasons, he left the orchestra and dove into the world of jazz, studio recording and a commitment to teaching. Walker’s bold, expressive playing can be heard on more than 750 motion picture soundtracks, including Beauty and the Beast, A Beautiful Mind, Toy Story, Zoolander and 2010: A Space Odyssey. Tickets are $14-$25. Submitted by: Madi Schulz Lied Center of Kansas
