Rubio Duo to Give Classical Concert in Long Lake
July 20, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
The Rubio Duo – Jill Rubio, flute, and Douglas Rubio, guitar – will perform in concert at the United Methodist Church in Long Lake on Thursday, July 20, at 7:30 p.m. The program will include a rural French dance by Émil Desportes, a toe-tapping tribute to a legendary Brazilian bird by Tom Eastwood, a Cajun waltz by Keith Gates, some children’s songs by jazz great Chick Corea, and an Irish ballad, march, and reel by Ian Krouse.
The Rubio Duo has been delighting audiences with music for flute and classical guitar since 1983, when they first began playing together as students at the University of Southern California. They have performed throughout the United States.
Flutist Jill Rubio performs frequently as a soloist and as an orchestral and chamber musician. Ms Rubio is principal flute of the Orchestra of Northern New York, principal flute of Northern Symphonic Winds, and member of the trio Sweet, Fair, and Wise (tenor voice, flute, and guitar.) Ms Rubio is Adjunct Professor of Flute at The Crane School of Music at SUNY Potsdam and Potsdam Central School’s high school and middle school band director. In 2016, she received the SUNY Potsdam President’s Award for Excellence in Adjunct Teaching, as well as the Distinguished Service Award from the New York State Band Directors Association. Every summer Ms Rubio is on staff at Crane Youth Music, teaching flute choir and conducting, and assisting with Flute Techniques.
Douglas Rubio is Professor of Classical Guitar at the State University of New York at Potsdam. He has performed as soloist at music festivals, universities, guitar societies, and concert series throughout the United States. Dr. Rubio has been the featured concerto soloist with the Montecito (California) chamber orchestra, the Pennsylvania Centre chamber orchestra, and the Orchestra of Northern New York. He is especially active in the field of chamber music. His Avalon Guitar Duo won First Prize in the 1985 Guitar Foundation of America International Duo Guitar Competition. Dr. Rubio is a noted pedagogue of the classical guitar. His students have been prizewinners in numerous competitions; many now teach at colleges around the country.
