Feb. 2, 2016

LYNCHBURG, TN (Feb. 2, 2016) – Motlow State Community College will present master flutist Galen Abdur-Razzaq to perform the program, "Notes at Noon" to celebrate Black History Month. The performance will be Thursday, Feb. 18, from 12:15 - 1:30 p.m. in Eoff Hall in the Powers Auditorium on the Moore County campus.

As a result of his intellectually stimulating lectures and powerful jazz performances, Abdur-Razzaq is considered one of the most popular artists on university and college campuses in the country, with his performances always resulting in demand for an encore performance. He has been featured at several Tennessee Board of Regent's institutions including Tennessee Tech, Volunteer State, Nashville State, and the University of Memphis.

Abdur-Razzaq is a talented and extraordinary flutist from Montclair, N.J., who has performed both domestically and internationally for over 30 years. A former student of the Berklee College of Music in Boston, and a graduate of Rutgers University in New Brunswick, N.J., Abdur-Razzaq holds a master's degree in fine arts and education. He is an arranger, composer, director, educator, and writer who has performed and recorded with some of the world's greatest recording artists.

His keen ability to transform an audience with the smooth, rich sound of his flute leads to the common conclusion that Abdur-Razzaq is, indeed, a "master" musician.

The public is invited and reservations are not required. For more information on the artist go to
