The Adult Summer Camp was designed by The Flute Society of Washington, Inc. to give the busy adult amateur flutist a summer camp in the evening. You’ll get a chance to play, practice and study with other adult amateurs, meet new flute playing friends and develop further as a flutist.  If your flute choir normally takes a break during the summer, this is a chance to keep up your skills during the break.

The camp will be held at (the same location as last year): 

Messiah United Methodist Church, 6215 Rolling RD, Springfield VA  22152 

There is ample parking available at the church. 


The camp offers two tracks: one for the adult flutist who has been playing two years or less and another track for the intermediate or advanced player. We will primarily work on flute choir music and small ensembles.  Please bring your alto or bass flute if you have one.

As part of your tuition you may take a 30 minute lesson with either David Lonkevich or Debbie Gilbert. Lessons are held prior to the start of class at either 6:00 PM or 6:30 PM. Please contact Debbie Gilbert at jdgilbert99@gmail.com to select a teacher and set up a day and time.


This year the camp will feature two exceptional artists as coaches:

Debbie Gilbert is the artistic director of the Woodbridge Flute Choir and principal flutist with the Piedmont Symphony Orchestra. She has taught private lessons to youth and adults for over 30 years and is an eight-time winner in the NFA Professional Flute Choir Competition and conducted the 2015 NFA High School Flute Choir. Debbie studied with Max Schoenfeld, Jeanne Timm, Thomas Perazzoli, Toshiko Kohno and Tadeu Coelho.

David Lonkevich received his B.M. from tManhattan School of Music. He has studied with Julius Baker, Jeanne Baxtresser, Michael Parloff, and Ransom Wilson. He teaches at George Washington University and the Washington Conservatory of Music. He has performed with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, and is principal flute with the National Theater Orchestra and the Wolf Trap Opera. He also performs regularly with the Kennedy Center Opera House Orchestra and performs recitals at the Austrian Embassy, and the French Embassy as part of the “Embassy Series.”
