The Pacific Northwest Flute Gathering (a.k.a. Vashon Island Flute Gathering) is one of the longest-running retreats featuring the Native American style flute, indigenous to the North American continent. This year’s event will be held online through Zoom. Access to all classes, workshops and concerts are included in the retreat tuition.
In addition to workshops, classes and concerts focusing on the Native flute, classes are available for didgeridoo and percussion. The retreat is lead by some of the finest teachers, performers and recording artists in the US:
- Cornell Kinderknecht, flute, retreat director
- Pamela Mortensen, didgeridoo, flute
- Joe Young, flute, percussion, recording
- Timothy Gomez, flute
Our event is a supportive, non-competitive atmosphere designed to maximize curiosity, learning and creativity. One of the key ingredients of this gathering is the camaraderie — friendship, bonding, personal growth and expression are a big part of what makes this event so popular.
