BROOKLINE, Mass. - March 5, 2014 - PRLog -- Brookline native and Boston Flute Academy (BFA) honorary alumna Emi Ferguson will perform on the same stage as the legendary flutist, Sir James Galway, during the opening concert of the BFA Galway Flute Weekend this Saturday March 8th, 2014.

From elementary school through high school, Ferguson grew up in Brookline where she attended the Winsor School. She studied flute for 8 years at Brookline Music School with flutist Judy Grant, and played for many years with the Boston Youth Symphony Orchestras and the NEC Youth Philharmonic

Orchestra. After high school, she moved from Brookline to New York City to attend the Juilliard School. The celebrated young star is now an accomplished professional flutist. At the Galway Flute Weekend, Ferguson will perform some of the flute’s most demanding music alongside Galway, whose recordings and teachings have influenced more than one generation of flutists.

Ferguson states, "Sir James and Lady Jeanne Galway are one of my earliest inspirations to play the flute. Having grown up listening to their recordings, at age 6, a week after I brought home my first flute, I was lucky enough to attend a performance and workshop they did in London at the Barbican and became one of the most memorable events in my musical development.“

Emi Ferguson will perform Paganini in the opening concert of the Galway Flute Weekend at the Maliotis Cultural Center in Brookline, on Saturday, March 8th, 2014 at 7:00 pm. Tickets for the Galway events are offered online for an advance concert pre-sale rate of $25, while seats last.
