Welcome to the New York Flute Club
Our Centennial Gala concert on November 17 at Merkin Hall was a stunning success. Carol Wincenc premiered our centennial commission: Five Andean Improvisations by Gabriela Lena Frank, and Robert Langevin, Mindy Kaufman, Paula Robison, Robert Dick Linda Chesis, and Michael Parloff, backed by an all-star flute orchestra, gave us a magnificent concert. For photos, see our centennial page.
Members received a free copy of the centennial history by Nancy Toff; if you did not pick one up there, you can get it at any concert this season. Additional copies are available at a modest charge of $5.00 each.
On to our next concert, on Sunday, December 15, when the club celebrates its longtime association with members of the New York Philharmonic. Robert Langevin, Alison Fierst, Yoobin Son, and Mindy Kaufman will perform. Following the concert join us to enjoy a slice of centennial birthday cake.
