Perennial favorites Brian Luce and Rex Woods will make another visit to the Arizona Senior Academy’s Great Room at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday (June 14).   This time they promise an all-French program featuring “Sonatine for Flute and Piano” by Dutilieux; “Jeux” by Ibert; Debussy’s “Chansons de Bilitis,: and  Sancan’s “Sonatine for Flute and Piano.”

Luce is the professor of flute at the University of Arizona’s Fred Fox School of Music and a Yamaha Performing Artist.  Acclaimed as an “authoritative soloist,” Luce has performed world-wide and is the winner of numerous awards and prizes including the National Flute Association.  An Arizona native, Luce is an avid outdoorsman and trekker.

Woods, who has taught at the UA since 1988, is well-known both locally and nationally as a pianist and chamber artist.  He has been heard in concerto performances with the Tucson Symphony Orchestra and the University of Arizona Symphony as well as the Catalina Chamber Orchestra.
