SEMFA Welcomes Spring Guest Artist, David Buck!

 SEMFA is delighted to welcome David Buck, Principal Flute of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, for a masterclass with emphasis on Orchestral Excerpts and Recital on March 5, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. to be held at the Ferndale First United Methodist Church, 22331 Woodward Avenue, Ferndale, MI 48220. 

 
Praised by The Oregonian for his "supple tone, rhythmic dynamism, and technical agility," David Buck joined the Detroit Symphony Orchestra as Principal Flute in 2012. He previously held principal positions with the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Oregon Symphony, and has made guest principal appearances with the Pittsburgh, Baltimore and Chicago Symphony Orchestras.
 
David has performed as a soloist with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, Detroit Chamber Winds & Strings and the Oregon Symphony, collaborating with conductors including Leonard Slatkin, John Storgårds, Paul Watkins and Teddy Abrams. In 2014, he recorded John Williams' rarely heard Concerto for Flute and Orchestra with Maestro Slatkin and the DSO for Naxos.
 
During the summer months, David has appeared at the Great Lakes Chamber Music Festival, Oregon Bach Festival, Colorado Music Festival, Tanglewood, Kent/Blossom, Spoleto Festival del Due Monde in Spoleto, Italy and the Pacific Music Festival in Sapporo, Japan. He is a member of the Detroit Chamber Winds & Strings and a former member of the LA Phil New Music Group.
 
David is a graduate of The Juilliard School, where he earned his Bachelor of Music degree and Graduate Diploma. His primary teachers have been Robert Langevin, Jeffrey Khaner, Jeanne Baxtresser and David Cramer. A native of Philadelphia, David lives in Royal Oak, Michigan with his wife, flutist Jung-Wan Kang.
