The UC Santa Barbara Flute Summit

The UC Santa Barbara Flute Summit

In honor of her 25th Anniversary teaching at UC Santa Barbara, Department of Music Chair Jill Felber has announced the UC Santa Barbara Flute Summit.  In a note to music faculty, Felber explains the impetus behind the event, saying it is “designed to raise funds for flute scholarships at UC Santa Barbara. “

 “I have invited former students and four of my favorite artist/teacher flutists in the country to join me in my celebration,” Felber continues, going on to list several alumni participants including: Tracy Harris, Naomi Seidman, Shivhan Dohse, Alison Olsen (Hazen), Andrea DiMaggio, Linda Holland, Calisa Hildebrand, Carol Joe, Katie Stuwe, Jill Heinke, and Kassey Plaha (LeBow) – all former UC Santa Barbara flute majors.”

Joining the flutists, the following invited artists/teachers will also participate: Marianne Gedigian (UT Austin), Brad Garner (Cincinnati Conservatory of Music), Angeleita Floyd (U of Northern Iowa), Nicole Molumby (Boise State) and Claudia Anderson (Grinnell College). These artists have joined Felber in teaching past summer flute seminars all over the country during the past 25 years.

Students from around the nation have registered to perform in the master classes to be led by Felber’s guest artists.  The event has proven extremely popular, and Felber notes, “With an announcement on Facebook inviting flutists to perform for the classes, the seminar sold out in just one day!”
