Welcome to the New York Flute Club
Please join us for the final event of 2018-19, the Annual Meeting and Ensemble Concert. We will elect board members for next year and hear a spirited performance by the members of our ensemble program. This group, which has met monthly under the extremely capable leadership of Denise Koncelik and Mark Vickers, is one of our most important programs, bringing together both amateur and professional flutists who play for the joy of it. They’ll give us a program of small and large ensemble works; there’s something for everyone.
And this ensemble will be the core of our first centennial event next fall: On September 15, we will assemble 100 Flutes for 100 Years to play flute choir works at Governors Island. Please save the date! Details will follow over the summer.
I also want to mention that national recognition of our centennial will kick off at the National Flute Association convention in Salt Lake City, August 1-4. I’ll be giving a talk on the history of the club, during which Mindy Kaufman, Rie Schmidt, Wendy Stern, Kathleen Nester, and Carol Wincenc will perform three works premiered at the club over the years. Don’t miss it!
Have a great summer,
Nancy Toff, president
