Lawrence University flutist Sam Golter earned first-place honors in the recent Collegiate Soloist Competition in Reston, Va. Sponsored by the Flute Society of Washington Inc., the competition is open to undergraduate students who are from or attend college in the Mid-Atlantic states.
Golter, a double degree candidate with majors in flute performance and gender studies from Springfield, Va., was one of three finalists selected from among 23 students who entered the competition via submitted audition tape.
In the live competition finals, Golter performed C.P.E Bach’s “Sonata in A Minor” and Ian Clarke’s “The Great Train Race.” A student in the flute studio of Erin Lesser, Golter received $300 for his winning performance.
