With Featured Guest Artist

Jill Felber

JILL FELBER has been hailed for her “beautifully finished performances” by The Detroit News and has been praised by Musical America for her “handsome performance.” “The incredible flutist…the dazzling flutist…the radiant flutist Jill Felber,” (The Independent, Santa Barbara), is known to excite audiences everywhere in concerts and recitals “played with flair” (The Los Angeles Times). “The outstanding American flutist Jill Felber” (Gazeta Rybnicka, Poland) is acclaimed worldwide for her “consummate musicianship” (Fanfare).

Ms. Felber has performed solo recitals, chamber music, and concertos on four continents and has held residencies in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Australia, Mexico, France, Switzerland, Great Britain, Italy and the United States. Also a tireless promoter of new music, Ms. Felber has inspired many composers to write solo and chamber works for her and for her flute duo ZAWA!, and is currently engaged in several commissioning projects. She has premiered over three hundred works for the flute and has released world premiere recordings for Centaur Records, CRI, Neuma Records, and ZAWA!MUSIC.

In demand as a guest clinician because of her extraordinary motivational teaching style, Felber is currently Professor of Flute at the University of California, Santa Barbara and performs as Principal Flute with Opera Santa Barbara. Holding degrees from University of Michigan and Bowling Green State University, Ms. Felber has taught on the faculties of Ohio University, Capital University, and Wright State University. Her teachers include Keith Bryan, Judith Bentley, Samuel Baron, and James Galway.
