The Adult Summer Camp was designed by the Flute Society of Washington 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., West Springfield VA 22152

There is ample parking available at the church.


This year we will again offer two tracks: one for the adult flutist who has been playing 2 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, bass or contrabass flute if you have one. As part of your tuition you may take a 30-minute lesson with either David Lonkevich or Debbie Gilbert prior to the start of one of our classes, either from 6:00-6:30 or 6:30-7:00PM. Please contact Debbie Gilbert at jdgilbert99 [at] gmail [dot] com to select a teacher and set up a time, or join our wait list.


This year the camp will again 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 eleven-time winner in the National Flute Association (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 Bachelor’s Degree in Music and was a member of the premiere class of the Masters in Orchestral Studies program at the Manhattan School of Music. His teachers include Baxtresser, Baker, Parloff and David Cramer. He teaches at the Washington Conservatory of Music and at his private studio and is also a frequent clinician and ensemble coach throughout the region. He is principal flute of the Wolf Trap Opera Orchestra and has also performed frequently with the National Symphony, the Kennedy Center Opera House Orchestra and the Baltimore, Mid-Atlantic and Alexandria Symphonies. He is also a member of the Third Millennium Ensemble and performs solo and chamber music frequently.
