The Pappoutsakis Prize, first presented in 1980, was established in 1979 in memory of James Pappoutsakis, flutist with the Boston Symphony Orchestra for nearly four decades and beloved teacher of generations of fine musicians now performing throughout the world.
This fall will mark our 34th year of this legendary annual competition and many wonderful changes are on the horizon. We are especially pleased to announce the formation of a special partnership between the James Pappoutsakis Memorial Fund (JPMF) and the New England Conservatory (NEC) that will help further our mission of celebrating excellence in flute performance and education in the heart of the world famous "flute city", Boston, MA.
Below, you will find the latest announcements about upcoming events, including the exciting developments we have in store for you this season. Thank you for your support and we look forward to many wonderful seasons ahead!
Jacqueline DeVoe, President
The James Pappoutsakis Memorial Fund
