The Summer Flute Ensemble is no longer accepting participants at this time. There will be a performance 5:00 p.m. August 2nd at Morano’s Gelato in Westfield. Please see our year round programs such as lessons and programs in the mean time.
New Jersey Workshop for the Arts presents the Summer Flute Ensemble, a free opportunity for flautists of ages twelve and older to rehearse and perform different styles of music. Students younger than twelve may participate with a teacher recommendation. The Summer Flute Ensemble will be lead by Kaitlyn Killeen, Assistant Director of the former flute ensemble at NJWA, the Fluteketeers. Ms. Killeen has played flute for 12 years and has been a member of various ensembles including Scotch Plains Fanwood Wind Ensemble and Susquehanna University Symphonic Band, Orchestra, and Flute Ensemble.
There will be a meeting on June 19 at 5 p.m. where students will audition. If this time does not work for your schedule, you can schedule an individual audition by phone or e-mail. Students must have at least one year of experience on flute. Students should be prepared to play a C Major, F Major, B flat Major, G Major, and D Major scale along with a two octave chromatic scale. The audition is informal and is to determine the skills of participants. If students have a recommendation from a school or private teacher, an audition may be deemed unnecessary.
Rehearsals will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 4:30 to 6:00 starting on June 26. The program will run for six weeks and the last rehearsal will be on August 2. This schedule is flexible and can be changed if there is another time that works better for the majority of the participants.
