The south west’s vibrant flute community are to descend on Truro School for two days on Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 March for the inaugural Cornwall Flute Festival.
Organised by the Cornwall Music Service Trust in partnership with Truro School’s music department, the two day event will feature a variety of workshops and eight masterclass sessions.
Saturday night will see headline act Katherine Bryan, Principal Flautist with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, perform live with accompanist Tim Carey.
Kate Whetter, event organiser and Cornwall Music Service Trust representative, said:
“To provide an opportunity for the south west’s flute community to come together and learn from world class musicians like Katherine Bryan is something we are all very proud to offer here at the Cornwall Music Service Trust as we grow from strength to strength since our conception in 2014.”
“Katherine is flying all the way down from Scotland and we look forward to seeing some star-struck flautists when she arrives!”
The two day event is also supported by exhibitors Just Flutes, Wonderful Winds and Jessica Rance Woodwind Instrument Repairs.
Tickets cost £35 for one day or £60 for both days and are available through the Cornwall Music Service Trust on 01872 246 043 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
