I’m very excited to announce that my school will be hosting a brand new flute festival this June 7-9. This is a new festival this year, and it will be an annual event going forward. It’s called the Southern Flute Festival, and I hope you’ll take a moment to follow the link and look it over. The web site has full details for the entire event. There are 3 days filled with masterclasses, recitals, workshops, and several concerts that are going to be fantastic.
Please take note of the competitions. There are two categories – high school, and then age 32 and under. There are significant cash prizes for the winners, and I think this is an especially great opportunity for students to gain experience in auditioning. Also note that the winners will be featured on the finale concert.
Also please take a look at the fee structure for this festival. The pricing is extremely reasonable for what you are getting. In addition, it’s also very inexpensive to find lodging and food in this area, so you can come here for three days, learn a lot, and not spend your life savings on it!
Lastly, let me point out that the Southern Flute Festival is occurring at the same time as another local arts event called Festival South. (Here is a link directly to their Eventspage.) There are a lot of great music events going on during Festival South, so you might even want to hang around the area and enjoy some of those events too.
