Recipient of the Gramophone Lifetime Achievement Award and recognized world-wide “as a supreme interpreter of the classical flute repertoire,” Sir James Galway is, indeed, a performer whose appeal transcends all musical boundaries. Inducted into the Hollywood Bowl of Fame alongside fellow inductees Liza Minnelli and B.B. King, he may be the only classical instrumentalist to hold such distinction. Since embarking on a solo career almost 45 years ago and having sold over 30 million copies of 97 recordings world-wide, toured extensively throughout the world, and seen on multiple nationally-televised documentaries in the U.K., Sir James Galway has long been recognized as a “household name.” Look forward to an evening at The Grand where Galway’s diverse repertoire reflects his impressive musical range and establishes him “as an artist of the very highest stature.” This performance is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts and Texas Commission on the Arts.
