Events this month

We have 3 big events coming up on Sunday 20th March!

The Junior Flute Day catering for flautists up to 14 years.  This event is a hands-on fun day for our young flautists, conducted by well-known educator Peter Bartels.  There is also a Gala Concert at 4pm for parents and friends to showcase all the students in performance.

The VCE Syllabus Exploration Day caters for students and teachers (and all interested others) wanting to hear and play flute pieces on the VCE Syllabus.  Very helpful for those pursuing VCE music at school, or considering it.  All music and piano accompaniment will be provided.  Works that will be covered include pre and post 20th century unaccompanied and accompanied flute repertoire.  What better way to know what the music is like than to play it for yourself!  This event will be organised by flute teacher and piano-playing extraordinaire Carolyn Grace.

The Adult Flute Day is a new event we’ve established to involve our adult flautists of any ability.  It will involve fun warm ups, ensemble playing, and workshop and discussions about flute repertoire and the history of the flute.  This is a great event to meet and play with other like-minded flautists.  This event will be conducted by a wonderful flautist and our VFG President, Mary Sheargold.
