We can only finalize the Flute Forum schedule once we have a clear idea of how many Performers and Participants have been accepted and plan to attend.  Generally, activities will begin 9:00-10:00 a.m. and conclude by 8:00-8:30 p.m.  This should enable any students attending from surrounding cities to have a reasonable commute.   Those who have registered as Performers, Participants, and Auditors will receive a detailed schedule of events early in June.  For a general idea of events, you may refer to the outline below.
