CSU Summer Arts 2021


The Complete 21st Century Flutist at CSU Summer Arts returns to the CSU Fresno campus July 6 – 19, 2021.  

The internationally acclaimed guest artists for this inspiring and transformational two week intensive include … Julien Beaudiment, Ian Clarke, Brook Ferguson, Steve Kujala, Peter Verhoyen, and yours truly.  We’ll be joined by pianists Wendy Caldwell and Bryan Pezzone, and teaching assistant Vanessa Fourla. 

While we enthusiastically wait for our promotional materials for 2021,  perhaps you might join us for our FREE Virtual Fall Masterclass/Workshop Series!

The Complete 21st Century Flutist at CSU Summer Arts: Refine Your Artistry and Learn How to Create a Home Studio will begin on Monday, October 5th at 9 am PDT, and will be available both synchronously and asynchronously.   If you are a current student, faculty, or staff in the California State University system, or a CSU Summer Arts student, you can participate synchronously.  All others will get to enjoy these recorded events shortly thereafter.

About each of our guest artists: 

Julien Beaudiment is the Principal Flutist of the Orchestre de Opera National de Lyon and Professor of Flute at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Lyon.  Julien will work with three students and we’ll have time for an interactive Q & A, as well. 

Acclaimed Los Angeles studio musician, flutist, composer Stephen Kujala will take us on a special tour inside his studio, Kuja La Land, and show you how to create your own home studio space for remote recording projects and share helpful tips on the recording process.  

Brook Ferguson is the Principal Flutist of both the Colorado Symphony and the River Oaks Chamber Orchestra.  Brook’s masterclass will be structured similarly to Julien’s class. 

All of the artists involved in this special online program will be back, live and in-person, at our program in Fresno in July!  We will be back and better than ever and will be so happy to put this pandemic behind us!  Fingers crossed!
