Flute Ensemble

Susan Deaver, Director

The Flute Ensemble, under the direction of Dr. Susan E. Deaver, rehearses weekly and provides the flute student with a broad performance experience of repertoire written for flute ensemble. The Flute Ensemble has informal performance opportunities within the class and presents a concert each semester. In addition, there may also be performance opportunities on a Student Concert and for educational off-campus concerts. The repertoire is selected to match the students' current capabilities and introduces flutists to practice and rehearsal skills needed to improve their ensemble and individual playing. Music form the Baroque Period to the 20th Century are included to give the student in the ensemble an overview of available flute ensemble music. The Flute Ensemble is also open to woodwind doublers wishing to improve their skills as a flutist. Flutists are introduced to performance and educational activities of organizations such as the Long Island Flute Club, the New York Flute Club, and the National Flute Association.
