The Rising Stars Program aims to nurture and develop young talent through fun and uniquely designed programs intended for children, ages 6-17. Here, they’ll be able to learn new things through workshops, meet other flutists from Finland and abroad, listen to the TFF competitions, observe masterclasses, enjoy concerts performed by Finnish and internationally acclaimed flutists, and perform in a final concert.

The program is an addition to the Tampere Flute Fest. Participants will be able to take part in the main event based on personal interest.

A 30-minute private lesson with Rising Stars faculty member Alexis Roman and Johanna Kärkkäinen is also possible. Those who are interested, please schedule early for spaces are limited.

All participants will receive a Rising Stars T-shirt. Please wear this at the final performance.
