Flute Events in the Northland September 2017


August 5, 2017

Well the summer is almost over.  I feel like this has been the most relaxing summer with some projects here and there.  I had a wonderful time in Costa Rica and really enjoyed and performing in my home.  I also loved being able to see family and friends.  It helps to keep me grounded.  On my return I have been gearing up for the Flute Convention.  It promises to be a busy one.  I have found time to create a flute newsletter for the Northland and I think it could be a great way to continue to build audiences and contacts in the community.  I am interested to see how things unfold.  Sign up if you want to know more!

Where has the summer gone!  I have spent a month teaching at the 3rd Annual Flute Workshop at UMD and at the North Shore Summer Music Experience.  It was rewarding to work with so many talented students.  I am about to head off to Costa Rica to perform at the 10th International Festival of Flute in Costa Rica.  I am pretty excited to perform for so many family and friends.  Meanwhile I am trying to plan so many events for next year at UMD.  Very excited to start recording my new CD featuring works for flute written by Scandinavian Women.  Through this project I have become very active in supporting some exciting new music projects including:

I have also been exploring a quarterly email to area flutists.  I want to really try to get more flutists and musicians engaged in the Greater Minnesota.  I enjoy my summer time in the Twin Cities but I find my time in Duluth kind of isolating.  I hope this will continue to help connect with a wider musical community!  To help this endeavor I have created a monthly newsletter to highlight some of the events that we help organize for flutists.  Here is the June Flute Community Newsletter of the Northland.
