For the second consecutive year, we are delighted to present the James Galway Flute Festival Award at the 2017 Marina Piccinini International Summer Masterclasses. The award continues the exciting partnership that enables one participant of the Piccinini master class each year to attend the Galway Festival in Weggis, Switzerland on full scholarship.. This year's winner is 15 year old Laura Futamura, a student in the Juilliard Pre-college division. The entire MPIMC team would like to thank Sir James and Lady Jeanne for their generosity, vision, and their many contributions to the global flute community.
At the Closing Recital of the 2017 MPIMC, Kaleb Chesnic was awarded a scholarship to return to the 2018 MPIMC based on his performances and rapid improvement throughout the week's masterclasses. Congratulations, Kaleb!
