About the Event
We are excited to offer a series of festival events including virtual workshops and performances on Friday evening and in-person events on Saturday at the Lake Travis High School campus. All festival activities are open to flutists of all ages and abilities. Flutists of all ages and abilities can engage in our masterclasses, workshops, concerts, and a special concert and workshop with our guest artist, Rhonda Larson. If you have been looking for a place to perform or a reason to dust off your keys, we welcome you to play in our festival flute choir, which will rehearse and perform on Saturday!
