THE 13TH HAMILTON FLUTE FESTIVAL







***AS CORONAVIRUS TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS ARE IN EFFECT FOR INTERNATIONAL VISITORS, HAMILTON FLUTE FESTIVAL HAS BEEN POSTPONED. AT A TIME WHEN THE WORLD IS A LITTLE MORE SETTLED, WE WILL ALL MEET TO SHARE OUR LOVE OF ALL THINGS FLUTE AGAIN.***

28-29 MARCH 2020

WITH GUEST ARTIST SALLY WALKER — AUSTRALIAN NATIONAL UNIVERSITY



A weekend of late summer flute events for less than the cost of a single lesson. Warm up your end of term 1 flute studies in 2020 with a weekend of workshops, masterclasses, ensemble playing and performances featuring Guest Artist, Sally Walker. We are fortunate to secure this flutist and teacher for a weekend of flute activities.

The weekend is designed for flutists from approximately Grade 4 and above and of all ages (including performance majors and teachers). We will again have several split classes to cater for our junior and senior players at the same time.

For those who wish to apply, there is the chance to perform for Sally in a masterclass setting.

The event will conclude late on Sunday afternoon with a small recital of performances from throughout the weekend, including a performance by Sally.

There will be trade stands including instruments and music available to view and purchase.

The registration desk and trade stands will be open from 9am on Satur­day morning and classes will begin at 10am. We'll be finished by 5:30pm Saturday and recommence at 9am Sunday, finishing after the closing concert on Sunday (approx. 4:30pm). Tea and coffee will be provided but please bring your own lunch each day.

CLASSES INCLUDE:

WORKSHOPS WITH SALLY

Historical Flutes—and how understanding them can alter and influence a modern flutists approach to Historical works.

Sympathetic Resonances—how to integrate tuning and playing in tune into your practice no matter where you are on your flute playing journey.

(Volunteers from the floor for both these classes.)
