Welcome to the
2nd Flute Festival Singapore
2011 It is our great honor to warmly welcome the internationally
renowned soloist William Bennett as our star guest artist for this years festival.
Singapore last heard the maestro perform live in 1992 on his first visit. Despite
Bennetts demanding schedule comprising performing and teaching around
the world, we are so fortunate that flute enthusiasts in the Asia region can
finally grasp this rare opportunity to experience his great artistry.
Equally exciting is the first performance of the famous flute
ensemble from Taipei, Taiwan - the Tone Melody Flute Ensemble. Under the
baton of veteran Chuang Ching-Lin who will be joined with our very own
local Flute Ensemble Singapore, the opening concert for the festival will
establish an unrivalled platform for cultural exchange in our region.
Our program for this year focuses on the cultivation of chamber
music playing in order to promote a greater appreciation of this musical
genre. Besides chamber concerts, our chamber competition is another
effort in advocating more comprehensive music making. It is the first and
surely not the last for our festivals.
For next year, we are looking forward to yet another very exciting
festival. With the first ever visit of the latest flute sensation Denis Bouriakov,
the much awaited flute orchestra program and the new sponsorship from
Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, it will surely be a
program that is not to be missed. For all the latest
updates and information, please join our

Thank you for coming to this years festival,
and we wish all of you an enjoyable weekend!

Michie Bennett was the flute professor of Royal Academy of Music in London

Ms. Bennett is the director of the BEEP Records, and director of the William Bennett
International Flute Summer School for the past 26 years.
William Bennett is one of the foremost musical artists performing today. He has
raised the profile of the flute to that of an instrument capable of a wide range of tonal
colors, dynamics, and expression, giving it the depth, dignity, and grandeur of the
voice or a string instrument.
Mr. Bennett studied in London with Geoffrey Gilbert, and in France with Jean-Pierre
Rampal and Marcel Moyse. He has been principal flute in many orchestras including
the London Symphony, the Academy of St Martin in the Fields, and the English
Chamber Orchestra. The Master classes of Marcel Moyse in Switzerland in the late 70's
provided extra stimulus and inspiration so that, in tandem with William Bennett's
burgeoning career developed as an international soloist and
