Austin Flute Choir: Sunday, March 19
The Austin Flute Choir was established in 1991 as part of the Austin Flute Society, a nonprofit organization that supports Central Texas flutists of all ages. The Flute Choir’s instrumentation includes piccolos, C-flutes, alto flutes, bass flutes, and a contrabass flute, and its repertoire ranges from classical music to popular, jazz, and folk tune arrangements.
The program for the March 19 performance will include Bach’s Siciliano, Ervin Monroe’s Variations on an Ancient Pavane, Lecuona’s Malagueña, and Rimsky-Korsakov’s Flight of the Bumblebee, as well as Kelly Via’s Fantasia on Red River Valley, Appalachian Suite, and Shenandoah. The choir will also play special arrangements of the popular favorites When the Saints Go Marching In and The Pink Panther, a patriotic medley called American Flute Salute, and two movements from Catherine McMichael’s Hill Country Sketches, a piece commissioned and premiered by the Austin Flute Choir.
The choir’s conductor is Isaac Medina, an accomplished flutist who also serves as head band director at Manor High School.
Free and open to the public, this performance is a gift of the Friends of the Georgetown Public Library. Come and go, or have a seat in the library lobby and enjoy the concert.
The Georgetown Public Library is located at 402 W. Eighth Street in Georgetown.
