Intermediate through professional level flutists-Undergraduate, Graduate, non-matriculated adults and Extension Diploma students-will explore the extensive piccolo, C flute, alto and bass flute repertoire of all styles and periods in a relaxed, supportive environment. No audition is necessary, just a love of the flute family and the vast array of pieces composed and arranged for this extremely popular combination. Participants are encouraged to suggest pieces they have heard and would like to play with a group. Each class will begin with warm-up selections. The first few weeks will cover possible repertoire for the semester based on the group size, level and musical preferences. Players will learn to use the flute to conduct entrances, phrasing and cut offs. Group tuning will be a focus. Once trios, quartets, etc. and complete group pieces with piano and multi-media possibilities are chosen, semester rehearsals will work toward an end of semester concert for family, friends and the community. Community outreach programs may also be arranged.
