The moment you’ve all been waiting for–our Flute Day schedule is here!

This is going to be an amazing event on Saturday, April 2nd with so many opportunities for flutists of all levels, and space is limited for some events, so be sure to sign up soon!

2-4pm: Altus professional instrument trials, by appointment only
Altus will be providing a variety of handmade instruments to try in an intimate environment with Erin and Dr. Cate. Appointments are a half hour and must be reserved ahead of time. Go to and select “Flute Testing with Cate Hummel” to reserve your appointment!

5pm: Cate Hummel recital
We’re SO happy live music is back, and Dr. Cate will be performing a wonderful variety of accompanied and solo pieces as a tribute to the the difficult times we all experienced during the COVID-19 pandemic and the isolation that ensued from it. Frank Horvat’s Music for Self-Isolation is part of a project of about 30 short pieces for all different instruments and voices. The entire project was recorded in an empty theater in Toronto in the summer of 2020. It was made into a commercial recording and a documentary was made about the project. Matthew Durrant’s Sonata for Flute wasn’t created specifically as a pandemic project, but was completed in 2020 during lockdown. Other pieces, new and old, will also be performed.

5:45 pm: Masterclass with area students
Immediately following Dr. Cate’s recital, she will present a masterclass featuring four students from area schools: 2 university music majors and 2 high school students.
