Welcome to the New York Flute Club


Nancy Toff
President, NYFC

Dear friends,

Happy new year! This Thursday, January 14, at 7:30 pm we present the next entry in our Solo Series with a real treat: Emily Beynon, principal flutist of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, will introduce us to the flute works of the Dutch composer Marius Flothuis. Many of us know that name from his cadenzas for the Mozart concertos, but few of us know about his own compositions. There are winners here! I have been trying for years to present Emily in recital at the flute club, but logistics have always interfered. So we are seizing the opportunity afforded by the online environment forced by the pandemic. Be there!

The program will be streamed on Facebook live.

Please note the following dates:
Sunday, January 24, 5:30 pm: Baroque flutist Janet See, with harpsichordist Jillon Stoppels Dupree. Details here.
February 5: application deadline for the New York Flute Club Competition preliminary round. Details here.
February 15: application deadline for the Young Musicians Contest. Details here.

Please visit the calendar for details of these events and the rest of the season, including the flute fair. We are posting updates regularly.
