ANU Flute Day is back by popular demand!

ANU Flute Day has become a key annual gathering of the Canberra flute community, bringing together ANU School of Music and Open School of Music flute students and pre-tertiary flute students from across Canberra and the region with Canberra’s leading flute teachers.

Now in its third year, the day will feature esteemed Canberra flautists and teachers Dr Sally Walker (Lecturer in Classical Performance [Woodwind] - Australian National University, Principal Flute – Omega Ensemble), Kiri Sollis (Flautist - Griffyn Ensemble, Principal Flute – Canberra Symphony Orchestra), Dr Beth Hwang, Kate Murphy, Jodie Petrov, Teresa Rabe, Jane Rayner (ACT Instrumental Music Program), Cicilia KemezysJoel Dreezer and Emma Warburton.

On Saturday 20 August, these flautists and teachers will lead flute ensembles (beginner to professional levels), masterclasses and workshops, and activities including a BodyMinded Alexander Technique Workshop, a historical instrument demonstration, a discussion about performance preparation and dealing with performance anxiety, and games for young flautists.

Notably, first-time ANU Flute Day teachers Cicilia Kemezys and Joel Dreezer will run an introduction to jazz and improvisation for flute, which have never before been explored at these events.

At the end of the day, all participants will have the opportunity to perform in a concert in the Big Band Room at the ANU School of Music.
