February 2015 Meeting

Our February meeting will be Saturday the 21st at 2PM. This time, we’ll be at the home of Barbara Pedersen, 28 Oakwood Drive in Chapel Hill.

This month, we’ll start looking at ornamentation and embellishments, showing you ways you can add a little something extra to your music. We will be featuring the flutes of Guillermo Martinez and the music of Gareth Laffely. As always, we’ll also make lots of music. If you have a song to share, whether it’s a traditional tune, an improv piece, or a jam with you and a few friends, we look forward to hearing it. If you just want to hang out and listen, that’s cool too. If you’d like to bring a snack to share, feel free to do so.

Coming up in April is Musical Echoes, one of the longest-running flute festivals, based in Fort Walton Beach, FL. This year, Mark Holland will be headlining the event, along with Jonny Lipford, Shelley Morningsong, Gareth Laffely, and a number of other performers. More information can be found at http://www.musicalechoes.org/. I’ve been there many, many times, so if you have any questions about it, just let me know.

If you’d like to host our next meeting, please let me know. And as always, feel free to get in touch if you have any feedback regarding the flute circle. I look forward to seeing you on the 21st.
