We offer two tracks

Each group will work on several flute choir pieces. Each session students will work on flute choir music and give a final performance on Friday, August 26 at 8:00PM. In addition to C flutes and piccolos, alto, bass and contrabass flutes are welcome.
As part of your tuition as a participant, you may take a 30-minute lesson with a camp coach prior to the start of one of our class sessions, 5:30 or 6:00 PM or at a mutually agreeable time.
