FluX: Where the worlds of Baroque and modern flutes, flute playing, and flute music come together.
"FluX has helped me to re-calibrate, start some new habits, take the next steps in gaining command of the instrument--both the baroque and modern flutes, and approach any piece of music more thoughtfully."
-- Asuncion Ojeda (USA), FluX III (2015)
"I learned a great deal and had several epiphanies which were positive. I enjoyed all of the seminars and the speed at which we worked, and I was able to take away a few golden nuggets of musical and general wisdom!"
-- Chelsea Czuchra (Switzerland), FluX II (2014)
"FluX is a world class Summer program that truly stretches the bounds of how we play, think, and engage with the flute. It is a treasure and an adventure to span over five centuries of repertoire in just a few days. My heartiest thanks and congratulations to Molly Barth and Kim Pineda for leading the way in creating such a powerful forum."
-- Shaun Barlow (Australia), FluX I, 2013
FluX is open to players of either modern or Baroque flute, and to those who play both instruments. Flutists of all ages are invited to attend, provided the repertoire listings are compatible with their playing level.

FluX focuses on music from the 18th-, 20th-, and 21st-centuries. Baroque flutists will work on the traditional repertoire for the instrument (and in-depth historical performance practices) as well as explore its ever-expanding repertoire of modern music. Modern players will focus on the current repertoire for their instrument as well as discover the parallel performance practices in Baroque music.
