Flagstaff — He remembered when he came to Flagstaff five years ago to get the job as conductor and artistic director for the Flagstaff Symphony Orchestra he and his wife took a trip to the Grand Canyon. At the Canyon’s gift shop, Randall C. Fleischer was drawn to the music playing in the background traditional, ethnic, haunting. The music stirred him, jogged something in him that goes beyond memory of a human life.
The music was that of R. Carlos Nakai, Native American flutist and composer.
