From classical to conservatory to orchestral to jazz to pop, television to film to the concert hall, Jim Walker has never met an audience that didn’t love his powerful, “stand and deliver” performances.
Jim began his training on piano and flute right here in Muhlenberg County, and then continued his studies at the University of Louisville. Jim has played in orchestras such as the Pittsburgh Symphony, the US Military Band, and the Los Angeles Philharmonic, where he was Principal Flutist for seven seasons.
Until June of 2010, he was a first-call studio flutist for the better part of two decades; playing on hundreds of soundtracks and commercial recordings. His playing became the gold standard from Hollywood to Carnegie Hall and unlocked the door to studio and concert collaborations with everyone from John Williams and Paul McCartney, Leonard Bernstein, James Galway, and the LA Guitar Quartet. His bold expressive playing can be heard on more than 750 motion picture soundtracks, including Titanic, Beauty and the Beast, A Beautiful Mind, Toy Story and Zoolander just to name a few.
Jim Walker is living proof that with enough creativity and determination, one can reach the stars. Don’t miss this rare chance to see such a talented musician in concert.
