Los Alamos Arts Council has been working through new technological waters to virtually bring the Brown Bag Series to the community. Due to Social/Physical Distancing, LAAC  cannot hold the Brown Bag series in person. Fortunately, our first performers, Heidi Morning on flute, and Yelena Mealy on the piano, have been gracious enough to record heir lovely performance. We have put it up on YouTube for the public to enjoy. Patrons can visit YouTube at http://youtu.be/SviK4TVg4cQ to see the work and dedication that these two artists have put into their performance. The program includes pieces from Claude Debussy, Cecile Chaminade, Gabriel Faure, and Charles T. Griffes. LAAC will host a Facebook Watch Party on Wednesday, Aug. 26 at noon.

Heidi Morning has played the flute for over a decade. She started playing in the 6th grade and has kept playing since. Aside from participating in national flute events, Heidi also plays in local ensembles including the Los Alamos Community Winds, Los Alamos Symphony Orchestra, and the Los Alamos Flute Choir. Heidi continues to grow as a musician and is happy to share her talents with the Los Alamos community.

Yelena Mealy was born in Kazan, Russia. At age six, she attended music school, graduating after eight years of study. After completing middle school, she went to Kazan Secondary Vocational School of Music for four years. Since arriving in the United States 15 years ago, she has been teaching piano and working as an accompanist. She moved to Los Alamos three years ago. She enjoys playing for Coro de Camara, Unitarian, United and Methodist churches, LAPS choirs, and teaching piano students.

Ms. Morning and Ms. Mealy, as well as Los Alamos Arts Council, thank Pac8 and their recording of the performance for viewing. The Brown Bag Concert Series is a free series provided to the community.
