Forging a life in the arts isn’t the easiest choice to make—especially these days—so Jacqueline Cordova-Arrington talks to three other flutists about one way to make things a little better: finding "the joy in waiting." And in anticipation of next month's 50th anniversary convention, we look at the many exciting events it will include, celebrate the Golden Anniversary Award recipients, share a few NFA member memories, and highlight more NFA commissions.
Katherine Saenger and Robert Dick look into the science behind the Pitch of the Plonk, debunking myths about tongue-ram acoustics. Erik Nugent and Robert Bigio give us a closer look at the instrument that inspired Verne Q. Powell’s famous Spoon Flute. Two members of the Performance Health Care Committee share their experience experimenting with flute weights to lessen performance-related pain. The Diversity and Inclusion Committee shares some of the work it’s been doing to manifest positive change. And as always, we have reviews, news, remembrances of those we’ve lost, and more.
The NFA has a number of advertising opportunities.
