About Flute Day

Flute Day is here again! High school flutists and guest collegiate flutists will perform in morning masterclasses with Dr. John Bailey, University of Nebraska-Lincoln Larson Professor of Music (flute). Requests to play in the masterclasses will be honored as received, with preference given to 11th and 12th graders and visiting college flutists. Younger flutists will be selected as space permits. Those selected to play in the masterclasses will be contacted. Everyone else is an auditor, and auditors learn as much or more than selected masterclass performers! There will be a flute choir reading session for all participants (bring your flutes!) and a showcase recital featuring UNL flutists performing flute and piano and flute solo works, followed by a masterclass with our guest artist working with UNL flutists and a chamber music recital featuring the Nebraska Flute Ensembles. Our guest artist, Dr. Claudia Anderson, performs a 7:30 PM recital.
