Presenting the Diversity Flute Workshop, directed by teachers Geraldine Morillo and Carmen Marulanda with a particular emphasis on learning about the diversity and musical styles of the flute found throughout history, creating curiosity and expanding the view of the students while adding a multicultural environment to the class.
