Fred Hemke

Continuing the Legacy

Dr. Fredrick L. Hemke, a pioneer and international leader of the classical saxophone for more than fifty years, has inspired an entire generation of composers, musicians and saxophonists.  His artistic values and his pedagogical genius are preserved and celebrated through the Frederick L. Hemke Saxophone Institute (FLHSI) at Snow Pond Music Festival, providing high-level college and graduate saxophonists with an intensive two-week summer program of study.  Located on the shores of Maine's Snow Pond Lake, the Institute offers a beautiful and inspirational setting for the creation of art and music.  The distinguished faculty for the FLHSI are all former students of Dr. Hemke.

Testimonials

Absolutely Cherished

“I absolutely cherished this experience. Every day seemed like a week in terms of volume of hard work and growth that I was able to achieve.

I’m at a much better place with myself as a player and person because of it. I would highly recommend this camp to anyone looking for such an experience. I was also extremely pleased with the musicianship of the other campers and it was so cool to watch everyone else’s growth. It was tremendous to be a part of it.” FLHSI Participant
