In July 2016, leading contemporary flutists will showcase their extraordinary abilities and share their knowledge of modern performance at the inaugural Unbound Flute Festival.
Held at the Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University, the heart of Brisbane’s cultural precinct at South Bank, the Unbound Flute Festival will bring together some of Australia’s most experienced contemporary flute players together with some of the highest profile international artists.
NEW BLOG ABOUT UNBOUND!Pop over to the Australian Music Centre’s online “RESONATE” magazine to read the blog post about the upcoming UNBOUND Flute Festival.
“No doubt the flute is one of the oldest, prettiest, fastest developing, and most popular among all wind instruments.
Through the Unbound Flute Festival we will highlight the flute’s most current, contemporary and cool sound and image.
We aim to make this festival as unique, useful and universal as possible and target all groups of musicians: professionals, students and general audiences.
It is with great pleasure that we invite you to join us for the inaugural Unbound Flute Festival.”
Sincerely, Janet & Michal
