NFA convention 2011 Charlotte NC
What an amazing week in Charlotte! The excitement was in the air right from the beginning for us at Gemeinhardt! Ali Ryerson started the convention off on the right foot by hosting the Gemeinhardt/Brio! Showcase. She showed off her new Ali Ryerson Autograph series Brio! flute, by performing selections from her 2011 NFA release of her new CD "Con Brio!"
Greg Pattillo at the same time, was busy with the High School soloist competition, as his composition "Three Beats for Beatbox Flute" was commissioned by the NFA to be included in the competition repertoire.
Nan Raphael, Roy Seaman clinician, performed for the opening concert with the Queen City Flute Orchestra.
Dr. Christine Erlander Beard, Roy Seaman artist and clinician performed on flute in concert celebrating Jean-Michel Damase.
Ali continued to be busy with the Jazz Flute Big Band reading, and Gala concert, and late night jazz cabaret Saturday night!
Along with all of this, each of these amazing people devoted much time at the Gemeinhardt booth creating all kinds of hype for the new instruments throughout the Gemeinhardt, Brio!, and Roy Seaman lines.
We generated quite a renewed enthusiasm with our dealers in attendance and with students, educators, and artists for our Gemeinhardt instruments! Amazing convention!
Please check out our Facebook page for photos from the convention.
We have many exciting events and news coming up! So Stay posted!!
