I will be recommending this camp to all the serious saxos interested in summer study, and I myself cannot wait to return next summer. Thanks to everyone involved, it was an experience I will take with me all life long.” FLHSI Participant
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.
