Jeffrey Khaner and Linda Mark


Canadian flutist Jeffrey Khaner joined the Philadelphia Orchestra as Principal Flute at the beginning of the 1990/1991 season following his Principal position with the Cleveland Orchestra from 1982 through 1990. Prior to his appointment in Cleveland, Mr. Khaner served as Co-Principal Flute of the Pittsburgh Symphony, the Principal Flute of the Mostly Mozart Festival in New York and the Atlantic Symphony in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

As a soloist, Jeffrey Khaner has appeared with the Montreal Symphony, the Milwaukee Chamber Orchestra, the Mostly Mozart Festival, the Atlantic Symphony and, on numerous occasions, with both the Cleveland and Philadelphia Orchestras. During the 1999/2000 season, Mr. Khaner appeared in recital with Maestro Wolfgang Sawallisch accompanying him at the Convention Center in Philadelphia, performed the Liebermann Flute Concerto with the Philadelphia Orchestra under the baton of Maestro Sawallisch and made his much-anticipated Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall debut with pianist Charles Abramovic. During the summer of 2000, Mr. Khaner will reprise the Liebermann Flute Concerto under Charles Dutoit at the Saratoga Festival and make a special performance of the Liebermann Flute Sonata accompanied by Lowell Liebermann himself. Exciting future engagements include recitals with pianist Charles Abramovic throughout North America and Canada and chamber music recital performances with the Syrinx Trio (comprised of Elizabeth Hainen de Peters, harp, and Roberto Diaz, viola) and with classical guitarist Jason Vieaux.

A graduate of the Juilliard School where he studied with Julius Baker, Jeffrey Khaner has been a faculty member of the world renowned Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia since 1985. He has given masterclasses and recitals throughout North, South and Central America, Europe and Asia. Mr. Khaner has also participated as a performer and teacher at the Solti Orchestral Project in Carnegie Hall, the Grand Teton Festival, the Pacific Music Festival and the Sarasota Music Festival.
