Flute Spa: By definition, a visit to a spa is meant to invigorate you, to make you stop and take time to think, to relax, to re-assess why you do what you do. In this case, a Flute Spa is designed to give you some new perspectives on how to approach your flute playing—everything from scales to body position to practice technique. Even though this spa won’t feature massages, manicures or hot tubs, we know that you will come away with a new focus for your performing and practicing skills. Patricia George has presented Flute Spas to rave reviews at flute clubs throughout the United States and at the NFA Convention.
Flute Choir: We will show you ways to incorporate the Flute Spa experience into the Flute Choir setting to improve everything from group warm-ups and getting a singing, ringing sound to group phrasing, ease in technical work, and playing as a cohesive ensemble. Flute Choir Reading Sessions conducted by Phyllis Avidan Louke will focus on the latest and greatest flute choir repertoire as well as some old favorites. The weekend will conclude with a flute choir performance at a local venue.
