Jamie Thompson - Urban Flute Project

Lynn Thompson in brief conversation with Jamie Thompson on the street in Toronto, two days after the final concert in The Junction Trio's 4th season of 'Post-Industrial Wednesdays!' at St. Anne's Church on Glastone in Toronto. In addition to a steady audience base, the concert series has been drawing new attendees each time, curious to see what's going on! The musicians and artists have been gradually expanding in number and variety, especially through this 4th season (generally the last Wednesday of the month Sept - May) of the performances.

For those who were unable to attend (or for us to relive the magic), the April concert based on the music of Vivaldi is archived through Donovan's live-stream, as well as May's concert entitled Rave with Ravel!.

Jamie's Urban Flute Project has been evolving since 2004, alongside his ongoing community outreach through exploration of sound in urban landscape, and including musical activities of others in the mix. A long time performer, teacher, coach, music examiner and student of life, Jamie is reknowned for his 'stealth recordings' and creative innovation, leaving 'the box' behind! Since 1988 he has been on the Flute Faculty of the Royal Conservatory and is an adjudicator for Indian Summer Music Awards since 2008.
