Announcing an immersive day just for amateur flutists on Saturday, April 29!
Connect with other flutists at #FluteYou, a day of exceptional flute engagement led by NJSO Principal Flute Bart Feller and NJSO Second Flute/Piccolo Kathleen. Players of all skill levels are welcome! Participate in flute choir, choose from a class with piccolo specialist Kathleen Nester or a session learning to relax your body to achieve your best sound--and take part in a valuable masterclass with Bart. Best of all, your day will culminate in a special Prelude Performance before the NJSO’s April 29 concert at NJPAC, which features Piston’s The Incredible Flutist with Bart in the solo role.
