UM School of Music presents guest artists Diagenesis Duo, featuring UM Alumnus Heather Barnes, soprano and collaborator Jennifer Bewerse, cello. Diagenesis was formed when Heather Barnes, soprano, and Jennifer Bewerse, cello, met in July 2010, during the soundSCAPE performance and composition exchange in Maccagno, Italy.  While walking between rehearsal locations and working together in a chamber ensemble, they formed a mutual artistic admiration and became fast friends.  They decided to form a duo that would specialize in performing new music for voice and cello—a relatively rare combination. Their mission is to bring high quality contemporary music to audiences of every shape, size, and background.

The UM Flute Festival brings you guest artist James Walker, fluteFew other flutists in history have made such indelible marks in so many musical circles. From jazz to pop to classical, television to film to the concert hall, Jim Walker has never met a crowd that didn’t love his powerful, “stand and deliver” performances.

 His star began to rise when Jim was named Associate Principal Flute in the Pittsburgh Symphony after a stint playing in the US Military Academy Band at West Point.  He quickly gained the admiration of colleagues and audiences in Pittsburgh and set his sights on Principal Flute jobs.  After eight years he won the Principal Flute position in the Los Angeles Philharmonic and never looked back.
