With a repertoire that ranges from classical to pop music, the Flute Ensemble performs pieces from “Danny Boy” to the ragtime tune “The Entertainer.” Audiences will also recognize “Ashokan Farewell,” which was popularized by the PBS series The Civil War, and selections from the film Beauty and the Beast.
The Flute Ensemble is open to both music majors and non-music majors. The group varies from four to eight members and includes piccolos and alto and bass flutes, in addition to the most common concert flute. Flute Ensemble members have varying levels of experience—some have studied for years, while others are relatively new to the instrument. Therefore, the group has fewer performances than other AU ensembles, allowing its members to focus on their skills.
The Flute Ensemble rehearses two hours a week and has performed at Anderson University’s chamber ensembles concerts, Christmas First Night, and the President’s Gala. All members enjoy the coaching of the Chair of the Department of Music, Dr. David Perry.
Ensemble participants may be eligible for scholarships. For more information, contact Dr. David Perry at firstname.lastname@example.org or (864) 231-5743
