Marina Piccinini International Masterclasses

SAVE THE DATE: JUNE 18-24, 2018

2017 marked our 10th anniversary, and to celebrate our milestone, the classes were held at the New World Center, home of the New World Symphony, in the heart of Miami Beach, Florida. Our inaugural year was an overwhelming success, and we are deeply indebted to the New World Symphony for their outstanding and generous hospitality.


The MPIMC offers an intensive week of artistic inspiration and development in a supportive and collaborative setting which includes masterclasses, workshops, lectures, concerts and exhibits. MPIMC is open to flutists of all ages at different stages of their career, from active professionals, college students, advanced high school to adult amateurs. Four distinct areas of focus are offered:

  • Master Performers Division with Marina Piccinini, assisted by collaborative pianists Colette Valentine and Araceli Chacon
  • Orchestral Audition Boot Camp with Brook Ferguson
  • Young Performers Division with Dr. Kristin Bacchiocchi Stewart
  • Auditors Division  

Supplementing the above courses, we invite all participants and auditors to experience a variety of other classes and events:

  • Special appearances with Guest artist Jeanne Baxtresser
  • Control Your Breath Classes
  • Lunchtime Lecture Series
  • Flute Circuit Training
  • Flute Choir
  • Exhibits by the world’s leading flute makers
  • Concerts
  • …and much more!

We are looking forward to extending the classes by an additional day next summer, and hope to see many new and returning faces.!
