“The Man with the Golden Flute” pays a visit to Boulder for a mesmerizing, genre-defying performance. Between his classical credits, his star-studded collaborations and his iconic recordings for “The Lord of the Rings” films, Sir James Galway is the premier flutist of our time.

“The nonchalant virtuosity and sterling musicianship that have kept Galway's solo career going strong for nearly 40 years were readily apparent throughout a concert liberally laced with Irish encores and the flutist's twinkly repartee with the audience.  Galway's playing remains a marvel. Each encore – there were eight in all throughout the evening – appeared to invigorate him all the more.”
— Chicago Tribune
