Come to the Hackettstown Free Public Library and get into the holiday spirit with music! Pamela Whitman will be on hand to delight you with her flute performances of traditional holiday favorites, world music, and classical gems. Meditative flutes, ethnic flutes with special effects, and joyous flute choirs capture the spirit of the holidays. Let your ears be instruments of peace.
In 1989, Pamela Whitman created Compassionate Heart Productions to promote peace and intercultural understanding through music. She founded and directed the world-rock band WorldColor. The band promoted peace through music by touring nationally and internationally with musicians from different countries. Her three-year cultural exchange program with Nepal included collaborations with Nepal’s leading musicians. The project included television and radio broadcasts, recordings, tours and documentaries that have aired in seventeen Asian countries. Artists for a Better World honored Pamela in an international award ceremony in Hollywood for her humanitarian work as a musician.
Whitman has starred at such diverse venues as The Brooklyn Academy of Music; The Birendra International Convention Center (Kathmandu, Nepal); Xinghai Concert Hall (Guangzhou, China); The House of Blues (Hollywood); The Himalayan Hard Rock Cafe and more. She has performed in the Costa Rican Rainforest; on Indian Reservations and at spiritual centers and Performing Arts Centers throughout the United States. In 2022, she toured Peru in collaboration with Peru’s leading Pan Flutist, Clemente Cesar Villalobos Leiva. Next year, she will collaborate with Dakota Flutist Bryan Akipa in a tour of tribal schools in South Dakota.
Pamela is a recording artist who enjoys using ethnic flutes in her music and collaborating with musicians from various cultures. She uses special effects to induce a peaceful response in the listener. You can hear her original New Age music on Hearts of Space Radio and all digital and streaming outlets. Her talks and radio broadcasts about accessing inner peace and joy have made her a recognized guest speaker. Her book, “Yield to Joy – the Miraculous Power of Forgiveness” is available on Amazon.com.
