The soloist for the April 2, 2017 The Stars Come Out concert will be Clint Foreman, flutist with the Boston Symphony. Clint will perform the timeless Concertino for Flute by CÚcile Chaminade. The concert will also feature the music of Clifton Williams, John Mackey and Dana Wilson.
Clint Foreman joined the Boston Symphony Orchestra at the beginning of the 2011-12 season. Formerly a member of the New World Symphony, he has also played with the Houston Symphony, Austin Symphony, Houston Grand Opera, Houston Ballet and Florida Grand Opera.
Foreman was a Tanglewood Music Center fellow in 2005 and 2006 while concurrently pursuing doctoral studies in the studio of Leone Buyse at Rice University. He completed his Master of Music degree as a student of Linda Chesis at the Manhattan School of Music. He received bachelors' degrees in both music and music education from the University of North Texas, where he studied with Mary Karen Clardy.
Clint began playing flute in the 6th grade at Westview Middle School, where his band directors were Verda Herrington and Luis "Chico" Portillo. He then attended Pflugerville High School and worked with band directors Douglas Kincaid, Bill Haehnel, and Cathy Eberling Bennett. During the spring of Clint's senior year, Mr. Kincaid passed away and a scholarship was created in his name, for which Clint was the first recipient.
His private flute instructors in Austin were Megan Meisenbach and Denise (Gurgel) Riemenschneider.
Clint first played with ASB at the end of his sophomore year of high school (1996) for the Mother's Day and Father's Day concerts at Zilker Park. This was the first time three generations of one family have shared the stage for an ASB concert. (Clint, his mother Beverly Lowak, his father Tom Foreman, and Beverly's dad Johnny Bruner have all been members of ASB.) Clint played with ASB during the fall of his senior year and performed with the group at the Midwest International Band and Orchestra Clinic in Chicago in December 1997.
