Grammy-nominated flutist Karen Kevra will teach a master class for high school students preparing for the All-State flute audition on Saturday, Jan. 4, from 10 am-1 pm at the Unitarian Church of Montpelier. The class will cover all of the requirements for the Vermont All-State flute audition including:
- Fun and effective practice strategies for the solo piece, Honegger’s “Danse de La Chevre”
- Scales: How to play them with musicality, a beautiful homogenous tone, and precision
- How to build effective sight-reading strategies
Kevra has performed as a soloist in many of the nation’s leading concert halls, from Carnegie Hall to the Washington D.C. Embassy Concert Series. The protégé of Louis Moyse, she has also studied with N.Y. Philharmonic former Principal Flute Jeanne Baxtresser. Kevra’s award-winning students regularly occupy top seats in All-State, All New England, Vermont Youth Orchestra, and Green Mountain Youth ensembles, including those who have gone on to study at leading music schools and conservatories.
Cost for the three-hour class is $35 for student participants. Teacher and student auditors’ fee is $30. To sign up or for more info, contact Karen Kevra at www.karenkevra.com or call 793-9291. Early registration is recommended, as space is limited.
