Oboist Jeffrey Paul's Pentatonic Fantasy for Dakota Flute and Orchestra was commissioned by the Sisseton Arts Council for the South Dakota Symphony Orchestra's Lakota Music Project performance at the Sisseton Performing Arts Center on Saturday. The Sisseton Arts Council wanted something distinctly South Dakota, and since Bryan Akipa, an accomplished flute maker and Dakota Flute player, was from the Sisseton Reservation, they thought it would be a good collaboration. Paul and Akipa visited with Karl Gehrke Tuesday on Dakota Midday.
