Wyoming Flute Fest

Wyoming Flute Fest (formerly Wyoming Flute Day) is a day-long celebration of all things flute!  Run by Dr. Nicole Riner, Visiting Assistant Professor of Flute at University of Wyoming, this annual spring semester event includes individual master classes and general workshops for all ages and ability levels, with topics ranging from practicing effectively to conquering performance anxiety and wellness issues like breathing and physical health. A different gest artist is featured in recital each year and UW faculty and students perform and serve as mentors throughout the day. A featured exhibitor will also be present with trial flutes and piccolos, accessories for sale,  and quick repairs available on-site. Registration and lunch are always free to all full-time students from Wyoming.

WFF is generously sponsored by University of Wyoming Department of Music and Wyoming Flute Association
