The Pocono Flute Society will present the annual Pocono Flute Festival on Saturday, April 26, at East Stroudsburg University. The all-day festival includes a Young Artist Competition, three workshops, a masterclass with Katherine Borst Jones and an evening concert recital.

Guest clinician Katherine Borst Jones is chair of brass winds and percussion and has been professor of flute at The Ohio State University since 1985. She is widely respected throughout the flute world as an educator and performer. She received the National Service Award by the National Flute Association in 2011. She has performed and presented masterclasses throughout the United States and around the world.

Flutists in elementary, middle and high school will compete for monetary awards in the annual Young Artist Competition. The junior level offers a $50 prize to a flutist up to grade 8, and the senior level offers a $100 prize for a student in grade 9 through 12. The two winners are also performed to play on the evening concert.

Morgann Elyce Davis will offer tips on sight-reading for auditions, for ensembles and for fun in the first workshop beginning at 9 a.m. Attendees can use those tips for the flute choir reading session, led by Lish Lindsey, at 10 a.m. At 11 Katherine Borst Jones will present a workshop on enhancing flute performance technique.

The afternoon masterclass will be led by Borst Jones, and will have flutists of a various ages and backgrounds performing a wide variety of music. She will help them to improve their flute playing and their interpretation of the music.

An evening concert will feature the competition winners, followed by the Pocono Flute Choir which will be conducted by Katherine Borst Jones. The second half of the program will be a solo recital by Jones, accompanied by pianist Alexis Fisher.

Admission for the entire day’s events is $35 for adults, $30 for students and senior citizens. Tickets for the evening concert alone are $10 for adults and $5 for students and seniors.
