As we are enjoying the end of a beautiful summer, the FSK is thinking about, and looking to, the 2016 KY Flute Festival. It will be a celebration of 17 years of the FSK!! We hope that you will make plans to join us at the Festival. Kentucky native, Valerie Coleman, will be our guest artist!! She is one of the most versatile performers in America today! In addition to traditional flute repertoire, Valerie is an expert in all forms of chamber music. What a wonderful experience this will be for everyone! You also will have the opportunity to perform for her in the master class. You can’t miss this! In addition to Ms. Coleman’s activities, there will be many other events during the Festival. There will be clinics about flute playing and teaching, a variety of 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 are posted in the 2016 KY Flute Festival section of our website. 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. So, you can begin preparing the music for the FSK Competition, as well as for your All-State audition! 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!
