Our COVID-19 Response
Because of the COVID-19 public health emergency, we have postponed our March 29 concert, which was to have featured the flutists of American Ballet Theatre. Our thanks to the artists and our audience for their understanding. We will reschedule as we are able.
For the same reason, the NYFC Ensemble rehearsal scheduled for March 22 has been canceled. Future rehearsals will be announced here and confirmed by email to regular members.
We have not yet made a decision about the April 19 masterclass and concert. We hope to present Paula Robison’s class and mini-recital on the Griffes Poem; a recital by our competition winners; and the New York premiere of a flute ensemble work by the esteemed Julia Wolfe, commissioned by the National Flute Association. We’ll post updates as they become available. Thank you for your patience.
