“It is a privilege to teach a student like Angela Collier,” says Dr. Lisa Vanarsdel, professor of music. “Her desire to attain her goals is exemplary and the key to her outstanding success. Being chosen as a finalist in this national competition puts her in the company of a select group of flutists from around the country.”

The Mid-South Flute Festival attracts flutists of all ages from Tennessee, Kentucky, Louisiana, Texas, Mississippi, Arkansas and Alabama for two days of recitals, lectures, master classes and flute choirs.

The festival concludes with a recital presented by the guest artist and the three finalists of the Young Artist Competition.

The winner of the 2004 Young Artist Competition receives a $750 cash prize.
