During the one-week workshop, each attendee will experience instruction from world-renowned guest artists, including members of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, The Flute Academy, Pro Arte Chamber Orchestra of Washington, as well as FSU music department faculty members. The academy will be no larger than 60 students.
