    Dear Members,

    Welcome to our final edition of South Australian Flute News for the year!

    The Fabulous Flute Fun Day for younger flautists was held on Sunday August 24 at Unley Uniting Church. Our special guest, David Burvill-Holmes, the Principal Flautist from the Band of the South Australia Police, treated us to an introduction to jazz. David gave an insight into rhythm and articulation in a jazz context and put the large ensemble through its paces with the ever popular C Jam Blues and One Note Samba. He encouraged everyone to explore improvisation and inspired us with a wonderful performance at the end of the day. There are some great photos of the afternoon in South Australian Flute News and on our Facebook page, as well as some pictures of the delicious afternoon tea! It was wonderful to see so many family and friends supporting the concert. I would like to extend a big thank you to David for sharing his expertise with us. I would also like to thank the rhythm section, Carol Young, Neil Conaghty and Steve Todd, who added a very special touch to the afternoon.

    The Adelaide Eisteddfod Flute Division was also held in August. Thank you to Robert Brown for his efforts organising this event. Inside this newsletter you will find details about which sections will be scheduled in the Adelaide Eisteddfod Flute Division in 2015.

    The David Cubbin Memorial Prize was held on Wednesday, September 10 at Unley Uniting Church. This year we welcomed back Geoffrey Collins to adjudicate the competition. Congratulations to all of the competitors for their wonderful performances and especially to the First Prize winner, Anna Hartley, to Alessandra Woods, who was awarded Second Prize,


    and to Jennifer Bird, who received an Honourable Mention.

    The second Tutti Flutti performance afternoon for the year took place on Sunday, September 14. The concert programme was varied with performances by younger flautists through to university students. Thank you very much to Linda Pirie for her ever efficient organising and to Sachiko Hidaka for her expert accompanying.

    Throughout the year, Masako Kondo has been busy updating brochures and flyers for our events and we have been enjoying seeing our new logo in action. Keep an eye out for the new look 2015 membership cards! Thanks for sharing your design skills, Masako!

    Our Annual General Meeting will be held on Tuesday, February 3, 2015 at 7-30 pm in the Beaumont Room at Burnside City Uniting Church. We would love to see you there if you are able to attend.

    My term as President of the Flute Society is soon to come to an end, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank the committee for their fantastic support, energy and enthusiasm. We have a fabulous flute community in Adelaide and it is important that we nurture and cherish this. All the best for your end of year flute exams and concerts.

    Seasons greetings to you and your families.
