Livestream Musical Prayer from the Cathedral
Gary Stroutsos, North American Indian flute

Join us each Friday evening at 6:30pm as our Cathedral Musicians and friends present meditative music to soothe the soul and bring a quiet end to a busy week. On February 19, we welcome Gary Stroutsos, whose live performances have captivated audiences around the world. His meditative flute music and time-honored stories evoke the lands and cultures that he has studied over the course of his 36-year career. Gary's mission is to carry the music forward to future generations and to promote stewardship of diverse cultures and the natural environment.

Each of Gary's engaging and unique solo performances is distinct, drawn from the inspiration of the space and the audience. His evocative musical style and use of humor transcends human differences in age and culture, connecting audiences in a shared contemplative space that transport them to a spirit of place.

Gary will play four different North American Indian flutes (photos are in the program):
- Hopi Long Flutes
- Dakota Eagle flute
- Dakota Elk flute
- Contemporary Native American style flute


A Message from Gary Stroutsos:

My name is Gary Stroutsos from Barre, Vermont and I now reside in Seattle, Washington. Since 1997, I have been honored to work with Native American culture bearers and artists.

I am excited to share some of my life’s work in this concert, which has been graciously shared with me and the ongoing support from my Native American collaborators. The music will be selections from my catalog of recordings. Half of my performance fee from this special concert is going to the Hopi Cultural Preservation Office. My current Hopi Long Flute project with Program Director Stewart Koyiyumptewa at Hopi will inspire young Hopi future flute players.

Please email me directly if you want to donate to the Hopi Cultural Preservation office. We move the music forward in a good way – please tune in to this free virtual event.

Thank you,
Gary Stroutsos
