About The Flute Program
YOCJ’s Flute Program sometimes consists of two levels: Flute Ensemble and Flute Choir. Mrs. Sandy Olson is the conductor.
The fall of 2018 will feature one large group: the Flute Ensemble. This group will perform, in addition to YOCJ’s other Chamber ensemble groups, at the Small Ensemble Concerts each semester, as well as the annual outreach trip, usually to Ocean City. They play contemporary flute ensemble music written by composers such as Nicole Chamberlain, Ricky Lombardo, Jonathan Cohen and Catherine McMichael as well as many arrangements of orchestral and chamber string works. YOCJ is looking forward to some exciting programming that also features other instruments in the flute family such as piccolo, alto flute, and bass flute!
• The Flute Ensemble currently rehearses on Tuesdays, 6:00pm to 7:00pm.
The Flute Choir is launching its own facebook page! Check it out:
