Message From the President
Dear San Diego,
I would first love to say hello to all of you and introduce myself as the new President of the San Diego Flute Guild! You may have seen me at events this past year as I served as 1st Vice President. Most recently, I was a coordinator for the 2018 SDFG Summer Camp, where 20 campers had an incredible experience learning from master teachers and playing in ensembles together.
A little about me: The flute has been a huge part of my life since the age of 10, when I first picked up the instrument. I received my D.M.A. in Flute Performance from the University of Miami in 2012, where I was a Mancini Fellow. One of the most important things to me is to share my love of the flute with others and cultivate an interest in the arts (whether it be performing, teaching, or supporting live music).
It is an absolute privilege to serve as President of this wonderful group and I cannot wait to share more about our programming for this coming year! If you have any thoughts to share with me as I start in this role, you can email me at:
-Farah Zolghadr, President
