PRLog - Jan. 14, 2012 - The James Pappoutsakis flute competition celebrates its 32nd anniversary with the contestants’ Final Round on Sunday, January 29, 2012 at 7:00 PM at Boston University College of Fine Arts Concert Hall, 855 Commonwealth Ave Boston, MA (free and open to the public).

This event offers the audience an opportunity to hear performances by extraordinary young artists who are studying at major Boston conservatories in preparation for concert careers.  This season's finalists are:  Michel Dew (Boston Conservatory of Music, student of Ann Bobo), Hanol Lee (Boston University, student of Linda Toote), Jisun Oh (New England Conservatory of Music, student of Renee Krimsier), and Bethanne Walker (Boston Conservatory, student of Linda Toote).
