JASON ANTHONY, flute
Jason Anthony was born in 1991 in Bangkok, Thailand and was introduced to piano and music theory at a young age. However, his interest in music sparked when he started taking classical guitar lessons with Ajarn Somwang Woraprasprue in 2004. Having followed Trinity Guildhall’s syllabus, Jason took the 4th and 5th grade examinations and passed with distinction and ranking 2nd and 1st place, respectively, in the nation. He completed the program in 2010 after passing the 8th (final) grade. Upon his graduation from NIVA International School in Thailand, he set out to pursue his undergraduate studies at La Sierra University, California. Today, he is a junior, double majoring in (business) management and flute. Over the years at La Sierra University, Jason has grown tremendously as a flutist under the fine tutelage of Dr. Martin Glicklich. He has also participated in a masterclass conducted by a world-renowned flutist, Jim Walker. Currently, he is performing with the Wind Ensemble and Orchestra as principal flutist. Just this past summer, he had the privilege to perform at Disney Concert Hall with La Sierra University Orchestra.
Jason has a passion for teaching and has been giving private and group lessons for classical guitar, flute, and music theory since 2008 for various schools and studios. Today, he teaches as a member of the Community Music School hosted by La Sierra University’s music department. Apart from teaching, Jason is also working as an in-house photographer for the music department as well as a freelance musician for various events.
Upon his graduation in 2014, he is looking forward to undertake the Masters in Teaching program as well as pursue further education in conducting and composing.
LINDSEY CHAR, flute
Lindsey Char was born and raised in Riverside, California. She began piano lessons with her mother at four years old and also started the violin at the age of six with Anthony Ginter. At the age of eight, she began to take flute lessons with Karen Togashi, the piccoloist of the Pacific Symphony Orchestra. Educated in Christian schools limited the amount of musical opportunities offered. Therefore, in middle school, Lindsey joined the Claremont Young Musicians Orchestra which allowed her to broaden her musical experiences. She was a member of the orchestra for six years. During high school, Lindsey was also able to complete level ten of the MTAC certificate of merit exams. In Fall 2011, Lindsey began attending La Sierra University pursuing a Bachelor of Arts/ Pre-Medicine as a violin major studying with Professor Jason Uyeyama. Additionally, she started studying flute with Dr. Martin Glicklich and in the fall 2012, officially switched her primary instrument from violin to flute. Lindsey continues to play in various ensembles on campus, Loma Linda Broadcasting Network, and local community churches. She plans on graduating next year in the Spring 2014.
