This four-day intensive workshop presents an opportunity for adult flutists of all ages to participate in masterclasses, and join in-depth discussions about the study of flute tone, breathing and body awareness both in flute practice and in performance.
Fifteen performers are chosen by taped audition and will be selected upon level of playing needed for the class selected. No limit to the number of auditors. Every age adult and performance level (student, amateur, semi-professional, professional) is encouraged to apply.
The repertoire-based workshops will focus on all aspects of practicing and performing and the movement workshops will feature Professor Schwiebert focusing on performance efficiency, reducing the stress and tension associated with performance, while increasing the student's capacity for expression.
In addition, several leading flute manufacturers will exhibit their instruments for attendees to view, test and buy!
