UNO Flute Festival
The festival is FREE. Students are asked to bring a copy of their own All-State music to perform in a “mock audition” and receive valuable feedback from our judging panel. You will also have an opportunity to hear Dr. Beard as well as UNO flute students perform, play in a flute choir, and you will be able to try out numerous professional and semi-professional flutes/piccolos on display from our on-site flute vendors.
We look forward to seeing you!
If you have any questions about the event, please email Dr. Christine Beard, Professor of Flute, at email@example.com
