Welcome to the 13th annual Wisconsin Flute Festival - The Free-Flying Flutist
Saturday, March 5th, 2016
This year’s festival The Free-Flying Flutist features guest artist Jim Walker, world-renowned Renaissance Man of the flute.
Jim Walker is a modern-day legend in the flute world, having served as principal flutist of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, founding member of the ground-breaking jazz quartet Free Flight, and first-call flutist for countless Hollywood film scores. Equally revered as a teacher, Jim Walker holds faculty positions at the Colburn School Conservatory of Music and the University of Southern California Thornton School of Music in Los Angeles.
The Wisconsin Flute Festival is a one-day educational event for flute players and enthusiasts of all ages and abilities. Attendees will get the opportunity to meet and network with other Midwest flute players and teachers, participate in hands-on classes and workshops, perform in solo and group settings, and access exhibitors and vendors of flutes and flute-related merchandise, as well as enjoy performances from a wide variety of professional musicians including a concert featuring Jim Walker.
The Wisconsin Flute Festival is a great opportunity to connect with and learn from the fantastically talented flute community of Wisconsin, and beyond. Flute faculty, students, and performers from the entire Midwest region will enjoy an inspiring day of education and fun in the beautiful Noel Fine Arts Center on the campus of UW-Stevens Point.
We hope you will join us for this event on Saturday, March 5th, 2016.
