This Saturday, I will be exhibiting at Indiana State University’s Flute Fest! Sponsored by Miyazawa, a favorite here in the shop, this event promises to be a great amalgamation of fine instruments, a recital, and so much more. The theme is “The Other Flutes” in the Landini Center for the Performing and Fine Arts, Seventh and Chestnut streets.
Sponsored by Miyazawa Flutes, the event will be open to students in seventh through 12th grade and will feature performances by Göran Marcusson and Native American flutist Will Whitefeather, exhibits by the Indy Flute Shop, a seminar in selecting the right flute, activities such as a play-along, a recital and a master class.
Marcusson of Sweden burst onto the American flute scene in 1987 when he won first prize in the National Flute Association’s Young Artist Competition. In 1992, he earned his soloist diploma from the Music Conservatory of Gothenburg. Sir James Galway awarded Göran a handmade flute of Waterford Crystal for his performance in the Galway Masterclass. Göran has been principal flutist with several orchestras including the London Symphony and the Finnish Radio Symphony. He maintains a busy international schedule as a soloist. Göran is a Miyazawa artist and plays a unique flute made especially for him called “Western Orchid.”
A guest artist recital, set for 1:30 p.m., will feature Marcusson, accompanied by Indiana State faculty member Martha Krasnican. It is free and open to everyone. Advance registration for the Flute Fair is $10 through Wednesdasy. Registration thereafter and on the day of the event is $15. Parents and teachers can attend free of charge.
