    Hello Members,

    One of our members is looking for a flute choir teacher to teach a flute choir in Carlsbad. They currently have 4 flutists and have played as "Flutelicious" in Encinitas venues. They could meet in Karen's Carlsbad home. She already has a lot of flute choir music available. If you're interested in teaching this flute choir, please contact Karen Ryan: kmryan100@gmail.com 

    Thank you!

    Piccolo for Kids

    9:00 – 10:45 am 

    From flute to piccolo in seven steps! Piccolo specialist Peter Verhoyen gives tips and tricks on how to cope with the differences in sound, finger movements, articulation, breathing, and vibrato between flute and piccolo.

    Junior High Flute Quartet Masterclass

    12:00 – 12:45 pm

    Low Flutes Workshop for Younger Flutists

    12:15 – 1:00 pm 

    See, hear, and play a smorgasbord of low flutes! Low flute specialists will be on hand to demonstrate, then invite students to play their instruments. It’s a low flute “petting zoo,” with everything from alto flutes to the eight-foot double contrabass flute! Hosted by the Low Flutes Committee. Preceded by a special performance by the winner of this year’s High School Soloist Competition, performing Gaubert’s Nocturne et Allegro Scherzando.

    Flute Choir Reading Session #3

    The Bach Air: An NFA Convention Tradition

    Sunday, August 14, 4:00  6:00 pm

    To close out the convention, it has become a beloved tradition for all flutists to join together in playing the Bach “Air” from the Suite in D, conducted by the NFA president. This piece has been performed annually since the first convention in 1973, but it wasn’t until 1985 that all flutists played the piece together—a tradition that has continued ever since. Bring yourself and your flute—sheet music will be provided!
