WHAT’S THE NEWS FOR GPFS

  • Flute Academy 2021 a Success: This past February GPFS held the 3rd annual Flute Academy, based Salem at Chemeketa Community College, as a virtual event. This Academy represents expanded opportunity for high quality flute education in the state of Oregon by adding a GPFS winter event as well as pushing our outreach further south in the Willamette Valley. There were two sessions: Body Mapping Workshop with Dr. Lisa Marsh; and, Masterclass with Oregon Symphony Principal Flutist Martha Long. If you weren't able to attend or want a refresh, you can login to your GPFS Member Account to find video content in the members only section and see a summary in The Portland Piper - "Highlights from the Body Mapping Session."
