What options do I have to participate?
- SDFG Sponsored Student/Adult Amateur Choir: This choir is best suited for students who can comfortably play most major scales in two octaves, keep a steady beat, and read rhythms will relative ease.
- SDFG Sponsored Teacher Choir: This choir is for any teacher who wishes to share their time and talent during the concert, and we encourage you to also bring your own studio's privately organized flute choir.
- Privately Organized Flute Choir: This is for any flute choir organized outside of the San Diego Flute Guild. Examples could be a group from school, a teacher organizing their own studio choir, or a community choir. Holiday music is not required for your group's program. Limited spots are available for privately organized groups, please sign up early.

Recap: College Audition Workshop
On Sunday, October 20th, San Diego Flute Guild presented a College Audition Workshop at SDSU with teacher and performer Pam Vliek Martchev. Six performers played in a masterclass setting, where they received feedback on their repertoire for upcoming auditions. We're looking to continue to add in events like this for our members, so stay tuned for more programs like this! Check out all our photos on our Facebook page!
Thanks to Pam for sharing her expertise with these performers and to all the performers and audience members for coming!
Recap: Fall Members' Recital
On Sunday, October 27th we had our Annual Meeting of the Members and Fall Members' Recital. Thanks to all of you who attended and performed! We were quite delighted with how many people filled the Community Room at Carmel Valley Library.
We started with a brief membership meeting, where we shared information about our 2019-2020 season and announced our Spring Festival guest artist. After the meeting, the Fall Members Recital began. It was an hour long program filled with beautiful performances from students, teachers, and other members of the flute community. There were so many new faces and we hope you continue to be involved in SDFG events!
A big thanks to Emily Persinko for taking photos that day and to Sunah Jong for providing refreshments. You can see lots of photos on our Facebook page (Like us too!).
