THE FLUTE MAN Few sounds are as captivating as those from a flute. Its high-pitch aural dance has enamored audiences for centuries and pleased practitioners such as George Washington and Leonardo da Vinci. One of the world’s most famous flautists—of this era or any other—is Sir James Galway. Over his decades-long career, this native of Northern Ireland has sold more than 30 million records and played for such dignitaries as Queen Elizabeth II, Pope John Paul II, and a trio of U.S. presidents. On March 28, he’ll perform at the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall in Fort Myers. The program will include pieces by composers such as Gabriel Fauré, Philippe Gaubert, and Francis Poulenc, as well as Irish folk songs by David Overton and Hamilton Harty’s “In Ireland Fantasy.” Toward the end of the evening, his wife and fellow flautist, Lady Jeanne Galway, will join him for Franz Doppler’s “Andante and Rondo Op. 25.” (bbmannpah.com)
