As we are enjoying the end of a beautiful summer, the FSK is thinking about, and looking to, the 2014 KY Flute Festival. It will be a celebration of 14 years of the FSK!! We hope that you will make plans to join us at the Festival. Jill Felber will be our guest artist! You will have the opportunity to hear her perform (with pianist Dianne Frazer!!) and learn from her teaching during the Festival. You also will have the opportunity to perform for her in the master class. You can’t miss this! In addition to Ms. Felber’s activities, there will be many other events during the Festival! There will be clinics about flute playing or teaching, concerts, a great Exhibit Hall with flutes and flute-related items, and many other fun things to experience!! All of the events that are a part of the Festival are included in the registration fee.
There will also be competitions that are a part of the Festival! The details will be available soon, but to help build the excitement and your feeling of anticipation … there will be an extra competition again this year: a New Music Competition! High School students, you may also want to know that, once again this year, we are using the KY All-State music for the recording round. As soon as KMEA announces these selections, you can begin preparing it for the FSK Competition, as well as for All-State! For those of you living outside of KY, we will update our Competition posting as soon as we know those selections (mid August??) so you can enter our FSK competition, as well. The FSK is very excited to offer all of these opportunities during this year’s Festival and we look forward to hearing everyone’s entries!
