Boot Camp: 9:00am to 4:30pm, Room A-301

Concert: 8:00pm, Daniel Recital Hall


The Baroque Flute Boot Camp is a rare opportunity to work with the world’s foremost expert on Johann Joachim Quantz’ 1752 work, Versuch einer Anweisung die Flöte traversiere zu spielen (On Playing the Flute), the definitive Baroque treatise of 18th-century performance practice.

Learn 18th-century ornaments, style, and articulations that can be applied to Baroque and modern instruments with world-renowned Baroque flutist and music historian, Dr. Mary Oleskiewicz.

"This will be the most informative Baroque music masterclass you will ever attend in your career!"—Dr. John Barcellona, professor of flute

A limited amount of performer spaces are still available to work with Dr. Oleskiewicz with unlimited auditor spaces to attend all her lecture demonstrations and masterclasses.

About Mary Oleskiewicz

Hailed as "one of the greatest Baroque flutists of our time" by American Record Guide, Mary Oleskiewicz enjoys a unique career as performer-scholar. After winning first prizes in both the National Flute Association’s Baroque Flute Artist and Doctoral Dissertation Competitions, she quickly established herself as an international performer of historical flutes and the leading expert on the flutist, theorist and composer Johann Joachim Quantz.

She records for the Hungaroton Classic and Naxos labels, and has recently released a highly acclaimed, world premiere CD of 18th-century flute concertos performed with Miklós Spanyi and Concerto Armonico.

She is principal flutist of Newton Baroque, and has appeared as soloist in Lincoln Center, the Library of Congress, and around the world. Dr. Oleskiewicz is Associate Professor of Music at the University of Massachusetts and is a frequent guest professor at Queen’s College in New York City and Harvard University.
