Welcome to the New York Flute Club

October 2021                                                                       

Dear members and friends,

The first two events of our 102nd season are coming right up. Our initial concert, on Sunday, October 17 at 5:30 pm, spotlights Maxence Larrieu, the legendary exponent of the fabled French school of flute playing. The program of mostly French music looks delightful, and includes some duets with his former student José-Daniel Castellon. After the concert, M. Larrieu will talk with NY Philharmonic principal flutist Robert Langevin, also a former student, and Fred Marcusa, our corporate liaison, about his storied career. Our thanks to Fred and Robert for their huge efforts to arrange this historic event. Or watch it on YouTube. More details here.

Also coming in October is "You Can Improvise Too!” the debut installment of the NYFC's new “I Just Wanna Play!” series. Longtime NYFC members Dotti Anita Taylor and Chip Shelton will be the presenters. The series aims to feature BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) performers in an interactive setting. You can call it "Search for Musical Freedom." You might call it "Search for Creativity." We will take you there when you join us on Thursday, October 21, 2021 at 7:00 pm. Downloadable charts composed specifically for this event are here, so that we can all play jazz together, even on Zoom! 

Meeting ID: 810 0552 5461
Passcode: 638816

For more information on both events, please see the October NYFC Newsletter

And if you haven’t already renewed your membership for 2021-22, there’s no time like the present. You can easily join or renew online or print and mail the membership form. 

See you online!
