As a member of the Flute Ensemble, you will be immersed in a variety of activities designed to develop technical skills, musicality, knowledge, and performance practices. A comprehensive program of flute instruction is designed to meet your individual needs and broaden your musical horizons. The Flute Ensemble is a dynamic group where students can develop ensemble and specific flute-related skills in an enjoyable and rewarding setting. Students prepare music utilizing the entire flute family — piccolo, traditional C flute, alto, and bass — and often collaborate with other musicians and ensembles.
Membership in the Flute Ensemble is by audition. If you are a musician who plays the flute or piccolo, you are invited to audition for the Flute Ensemble — whether you are a Music major, a Music minor, or a nonmajor. Auditions take place at the beginning of Autumn Quarter (see notices posted in the lobby of Crawford Music Building prior to the beginning of the quarter). A yearlong commitment is expected, and you may take the course an unlimited number of times.
