Dear Friends and Flutists!
We hope that you will join us at NEC on Sunday, September 7th for a wonderful day of flute activities! The Pappoutsakis-sponsored events begin at 1:00 pm with 4 free masterclasses presented by premier teachers of our Boston flute community. Following a tradition begun by former BSO flutist Fenwick Smith, these classes will present the required pieces for MMEA Northeastern, Eastern, Southeastern and Central Senior District auditions. Then at 3:00 p.m. the 34th Winner of the Pappoutsakis Flute Competition, NEC student Adrian Sanborn, will present a solo recital in NEC's acclaimed Jordan Hall. These events are free and open to all!
Also at NEC that morning (but not a Pappoutsakis-sponsored event) is the Flutistry Boston Showcase in Brown Hall from 9:30 am - 1 pm. Many of our valued Pappoutsakis supporters will have representatives on hand. Why not make it a full flute day?
Finally, for those flutists enrolled in the Boston schools where James Pappoutsakis once taught, you are invited to apply now for the 35th annual competition. The repertoire requirements and full application are just a click away. See you in November!
Jacqueline DeVoe, President
