Da Capo Paris Flute Class, 2018

The Da Capo Alliance is proud to announce our 2018 summer flute class in Paris, France. Events will be held July 8-21 at the Cité des Arts in Paris. Faculty will include Linda Chesis, April Clayton, Nicolas Duchamp, Patricia Nagle, and others to be announced in the coming weeks. All events will be offered with a translator available, in English and French.

For centuries, Paris has arguably been the most important flute center of the world. A long list of world class artists, including Pahud, Galway, Rampal, Moyse, Gaubert, Taffanel, all the way back to the Hotteterre family in the 1600-1700s, completed their studies and much of their professional work in this musical mecca. We invite you to approach your flute studies with intensity for two beautiful weeks of music making in Paris. Our focus will be on French repertoire, etudes, and study methods, although other standard and new works will also be performed. Through faculty and student recitals, masterclasses, lectures, discussions, and concentrated technique workshops, you will be challenged and strengthened in all areas as a flutist. There is no better place to immerse yourself in our wonderful, rich heritage of French flute music than Paris.
