Denison Hosts Suzuki Flute Festival
Posted: December 1, 2007 / Last Updated: December 19, 2007
The first-ever flute festival of the Denison University Suzuki Program will be held Friday and Saturday, Jan. 4 and 5, 2008, in Burke Hall of Music and Art on the Denison campus. All student flutists, from pre-school through high school, are welcome to register and attend, and students need not have any Suzuki experience. The festival, "Flutes in the Frost", will be held Friday evening and all day Saturday.
The guest teacher for the festival is Carole Ann Yeazell, a Suzuki flute instructor based in Cincinnati. Yeazell has studied in Japan with Toshio Takahashi, the founder of the Suzuki flute method, and also has taught at flute institutes and workshops around the country. Student flutists will have individual instruction in master classes with Yeazell, and she will lead group classes in repertoire and technique.
Denison University faculty from the Departments of Dance and Music will lead enrichment classes in movement and percussion, and perform in a flute recital. The Saturday lunchtime recital will feature Dr. Leslie Maaser and other flutists. This intriguing recital will showcase some interesting and exotic flutes, including the tiny piccolo, an alto flute and a huge bass flute.
"It will be a wonderful day for flutists to play with and learn from each other, and to have a whole lot of fun with the many varied activities planned", said Linda Habig, flute instructor in the Denison Suzuki Program and organizer of the festival. Habig added, "Teachers and college students may audit the entire festival as well, and we welcome them."
