Are you a flute student in middle school or high school? If so, you are invited to join us for UW-Madison Flute Day on February 11, 2018!
Flute Day start time: 11AM
Final concert with George Pope and the UW-Madison Flute Ensemble: 5:00 PM
The schedule includes performances by our fabulous guest artist, flutist extraordinaire George Pope, as well as by UW-Madison flute faculty Timothy Hagen and the UW-Madison Flute Ensemble. In addition, participants will be offered a brief seminar on making practicing more effective and enjoyable. Most importantly, there are opportunities for participants to perform in master classes and mock auditions in preparation for WSMA Solo and Ensemble Festivals and other solo performances.
All participants are invited to perform a mock audition and receive feedback from members of the UW-Madison Flute Ensemble. However, space is limited, so register early.
If you would like to perform in one of the master classes, please email Professor Hagen by February 1, 2018, at email@example.com. Include a brief note of recommendation from your band director or private instructor.
