Welcome to the New York Flute Club
The weather may be terrible, but neither rain nor snow nor heat nor gloom of night will keep the New York Flute Club from its appointed rounds. On Thursday, February 25, at 7:30 pm our own multi-talented flutist/composer Robert Dick gives us a varied two-hour masterclass with something for everyone. First, 12-year-old flutist/composer Ilaria Hawley, a student of Zara Lawler, will work with Robert on an original composition of theirs. Second, Robert will coach Adeline DeBella, a student of Tara O'Connor, on his piece Lookout. Then Jessica Taskov, who has organized the program, will be “in conversation” with Robert about his music and pedagogy—the goal being to help flutists of all levels to invigorate their warm-up routines, make these techniques a regular part of their life, and also to help people understand that his music is not as scary as it looks. The benefits to tone color, ear training, breath control, and flexibility are truly on another level!

On Sunday, February 28 at 5:30 pm we’ll present a Solo Flute Spectacular with Lisa Bost-Sandberg, Bonita Boyd, Stephanie Jutt, Alexa Still, and Paul Taub in works of Barbara Benary, Lou Harrison, Luciano Berio, Lisa Bost-Sandberg, Alberto Ginastera, Raimundo Pineda, Charles Koechlin, and John La Montaine, a feast of masterworks. Some of these works are likely familiar, but many are not, and you may want to add them to your own repertoire.
