FLUTE ORCHESTRA BRINGS CHRISTMAS TO WOLFEBORO

An unusual holiday treat comes to Wolfeboro on Sunday afternoon at 2 PM on December 12, when the New England Flute Orchestra of Indian Hill Music (Littleton, Mass.) arrives to present a concert of seasonal music. The ensemble features all members of the flute family, from piccolo to contrabass flute. The Orchestra is a professional level ensemble made of up of music educators, church musicians, and flutists with formal training and a life-long commitment to music. Founded as a four-person ensemble in 1983, this voluntary, non-profit organization has been devoted to the cultural and musical enrichment of Nashua, and surrounding communities in New Hampshire and Massachusetts for nearly forty years. The ensemble has premiered five commissioned works, has recorded three CDs, and was featured on television’s New Hampshire Chronicle. They have performed at several National Flute Association Conventions and in Boston’s Symphony Hall. In 2014 The Nashua Flute Choir changed its name to the New England Flute Orchestra, reflecting the growth of the ensemble, the geographic range of its performing venues, and plans.

Performing members of the ensemble are all professionally trained flutists with decades of experience. About half of the orchestra is composed of  concert flutes. The remainder of the group is composed of piccolo, alto, bass, and contrabass flutes. Many players perform on some or all these instruments and will switch flutes between pieces. The seven-foot-tall contrabass flute always creates a sensation and anchors the sound of the ensemble. Because of the high level of proficiency of all the flutists, any one of them may be the featured soloist in a piece.
Music performed by the Flute Orchestra includes selections composed specifically for flute orchestra as well as arrangements of music for other ensembles. Organ, piano, and string music translate well into the unified resonance of the flute orchestra. Some works may feature the low flutes alone, for a unique sound.

The Wolfeboro Friends of Music requires that all attendees adhere to the Covid Guidelines established by the First Congregational Church of Wolfeboro including that vaccination is required of ALL attendees. Masks are required to be worn properly at all times, social distancing is required, and each attendee must legibly complete and sign the contact tracing/liability release sheet.
