...incisive and expressive...Palmer reveled in the
display of virtuosity...clearly among the few
current performers on any instrument to fully
understand the nature of French Baroque music.

Something special is stirring in our
backyard...deeply personal music performed
with mastery. Steve Lin, guitar, and Kris Palmer
perform beautifully together: perfect
synchronization of subtle rhythms and phrases.

The evening concert began with Dr. Kris Palmer
playing the alto flute...Dr. Palmer played to the
piece’s strengths and let the audience enjoy the
rich tone of the alto.
