The Morris Museum is pleased to announce that the Azure Ensemble, a chamber music group based out of New York City, will perform a classical music program inspired by the French Impressionist period at the Bickford Theatre on Sunday, October 30 at 2:00PM.

The Azure Ensemble is one of New York City's most exciting new chamber music groups. Known for its varied and notable repertoire, the ensemble draws its members from the finest musicians in the New York area. On October 30, the Azure Ensemble will present a program for flute, viola, and harp, influenced by the French Impressionist period. These works are remarkable for their varied palette of color and mood, and create atmospheres of beauty and wonder. Halloween fans will hear a spooky piece based on Edgar Allan Poe's "The Telltale Heart."

Born in Madison, New Jersey, flutist Susan Glaser is the founder and artistic director of the Azure Ensemble. She has been widely recognized for her colorful interpretations, virtuosity and glowing tone. Ms. Glaser holds a doctorate from The Juilliard School. A recipient of a Fulbright grant for study in Vienna, Ms. Glaser has been the flute professor at the University of Colorado at Boulder. Ms. Glaser is currently on the flute faculty of New York University.

Ms. Glaser has appeared as soloist in the Far East, Europe, Canada and the United States, performing at prestigious concert halls such as London's Wigmore Hall, the John Field Room of Ireland's National Concert Hall, the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, New York's Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center, Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, and Chicago's Preston Bradley Hall. She recently performed with the Lark Quartet in Merkin Concert Hall.
