GPFS Fall Event - A Members Only: Speed Duetting and Hospitality
October 29, 2022 at PSU 75 Lincoln Hall
Registration Closes 5 pm on Sunday 10/23.
Time: 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
Cost: Free for Members
Preparing: Bring your flute, a music stand and, if you wish, a small food item to share.
Finally, a chance to get together and enjoy playing music together!
Would you enjoy an opportunity to play music with old and new flute friends? For this year's Fall Event, GPFS has reserved 75 Lincoln Hall at Portland State University (PSU), October 29th for just that purpose! There will be a repertoire list of duets and trios that range in difficulty from beginner to advanced - so you'll be able to play the music you feel most comfortable with.
We'll start by splitting into two large groups to read through some of the duet music. Then, we'll move on to "speed duetting," creating a rotation of participants playing with a variety of partners - all according to your experience level. Finally, there will be an opportunity to break into small groups or perhaps find a one-on-one match with a like-minded duet partner.
As you are registering, you will have the opportunity to say what levels of music you think you feel comfortable playing. A list of the music we'll be playing will be available in advance of the day.
If you are not already a member of GPFS or have not renewed your membership yet, you can do so here: Membership. Your low membership fee supports: fall event, First Tuesdays, annual Flute Fair and guest artist, Student Study Grants, middle and high school competitions, masterclasses, Flute Academy, and more!
Finally, a big thank you to our loyal and generous Commercial Members and Sponsors whose support also makes all of the above possible. Please consider supporting their business and recommending them to others.
