What is The Flute Speakeasy Workshop?
In honor of Katherine Hoover and her legacy, the Flute Speakeasy Workshop seeks to encourage aspiring performer-composers, while demystifying the creative process within a safe and non-judgmental environment. The session hosts Nicole Chamberlain, Valerie Coleman, and Amanda Harberg are looking for creative flutists of intermediate to advanced level to share their original music, and to guide them with helpful tips. The performed music must be at least 2-3 minutes in duration, and works-in-progress are welcome. A panel discussion and performance by the hosts will follow the workshop.
