Friends University to Host Annual Tack Flute Competition

News Date: 
Mon. 04/16/2012

Following his death in 1966, friends and colleagues of Wichita flutist and teacher George B. Tack formed a memorial committee for the purpose of perpetuating Tack’s lifelong interests in flute playing and young people. Tack’s Haynes flute was given to the committee to be loaned on an annual basis to a deserving young flutist who needed a better instrument but could not afford one. Since 1967, many young flutists have had a chance to use his instrument and be encouraged by it.
