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:

Summer Camp 2018

Last week, SDFG hosted a flute summer camp at Green Oak Ranch. We were joined by 20 campers who have had the opportunity to make music with each other. We were joined by the Featured Guest Artist, Seth Allyn Morris, and other guest artists: Janelle Barrera, September Payne, Maralyn Prestia, Alina Freiman Steele, and Renee Tresko. The camp was filled with numerous camp activities and the campers made new friendships and became better musicians. We look forward to the next summer camp!
