Welcome to the New York Flute Club
Dear members and friends,
Welcome to the 102nd season of the New York Flute Club, still feeling hopeful and forward-looking. In 2021-22 we will hear many wonderful flutists and much unusual music, representing a broad spectrum of styles, ages, and combinations—from the last important representative of the classic French School to the newest jazz, South American, African, and world music styles. We expect a mix of virtual and live performances, and will promote a new theme ("I Just Wanna to Play!") through masterclasses, ensemble formation, competitions, and repertory discussion. We recognize that our membership listens as well as plays, and hope you all will join us as both players and listeners, supporters of education for young flutists, and encouragers of the next generation. I welcome all suggestions for improvement of the Club and look forward to hearing from you!
