My name is Chaz Salazar and I am thrilled to collaborate with the Audubon for the Birds N Beer event! I wanted to take this project on because it is important to create working relationships with other organizations and the community to keep what we do as flutists and musicians alive. This is a wonderful opportunity to introduce those who aren't super familiar with classical music and flute and show them exactly what it is that we do and what we are about. I'm probably most excited about premiering a brand new piece written just for this event that is inspired by birds which are native to Arizona. Come and bring a friend to share and support this wonderful evening of music, flute, birds, and beer!
