FSU COLLEGE OF MUSIC SUMMIT FEATURES WORLD-CLASS FLUTISTS
Florida State University’s College of Music presented a special series of concerts, music workshops and lectures featuring an international lineup of musicians Spring Semester 2019.
From Friday through Sunday, March 1-3, the college teamed up with the Flute Association at Florida State University and the Florida State University Flute Studio to bring together six multi-talented musicians who are experts in other fields as well, such as entrepreneurship, medicine, music therapy, body awareness and research.
The musicians led “Flute Summit 2019: The 21st Century Musician,” a weekend of activities and recitals at six venues on campus.
The guest artists are (clockwise from upper-left in cover photo): Paul Edmund-Davies, an international soloist and former principal in the London Symphony Orchestra; Stephanie Jutt, professor emerita of flute at the University of Wisconsin-Madison; Angeleita Floyd, professor of flute at the University of Northern Iowa; Frank Diaz, associate professor of music education at Indiana University; Dr. Eckart Altenmüller, professor of music physiology and medicine, Hochschule für Musik, Theater und Medien, Hannover, Germany; and Sara Rose, Feldenkrais Instructor, Tallahassee.
The chair of the summit, FSU Professor Eva Amsler, said the weekend offered a rare opportunity to learn and talk with these talented artists.
“It was very exciting to have such an incredible range of guests from different generations, diverse backgrounds and areas of research,” Amsler said. “This was an opportunity to hear world-class musicians perform. The FSU Flute Summit presents an interdisciplinary approach to musicianship, and we wish to expose audiences to interesting new views outside our daily music experience.”
