Annual New Jersey Flute Choir Day to be held at Caldwell University April 3 

The annual New Jersey Flute Choir Day will be held Sunday, April 3 at Caldwell University.

 

The program is open to elementary, junior high, high school, college students, and adults who play the flute and would like to take part in playing ensemble works scored for piccolo, C flute, alto and bass flutes, and the contrabass flute.

 

All applicants are accepted for participation in the program. Applicants are placed in groups according to age, playing experience and/or audition. Groups rehearse in classes with their level throughout the day except when all classes come together to rehearse the Finale. All classes perform together in the concert.

 

Music for each level will be emailed to participants after they  register so that they may practice the music to be ready to rehearse on April 3. Music consists of the pieces for the musician’s level as well as the pieces that everyone will play together for the finale.
