Community Flute Day
August 11, 2019
Koinonia Retreat Center, South Haven, MN
Calling all Central MN flutists! Community Flute Day at LSFI is a brand new opportunity to take your playing to the next level, make new friends, and experience flute in a whole new way!
Get ready for All-State auditions, chair placements, or bring any piece of your choosing! Each participant will receive an individual lesson with Dr. Catherine Ramirez in a masterclass format. Get personalized feedback on your playing from one of Minnesota's finest teachers and performers and learn from observing your fellow flutists in their own lessons.
Pair up with flutists at your level for a duet or trio. You'll get tips and coaching from a professional to make the music come to life and perform on the final concert.
Hear the flute at its best with performances by our teaching artists. Show off your chamber music and flute choir pieces for fellow flutists and family. Playing music together is the perfect way to end the day!
