Welcome to Avanti Flute Choir. We are a performing flute choir composed of amateur through professional musicians. We perform in an annual concert series and are devoted to promoting flute music.
We meet every Monday from 6:30-8:30 PM in the San Carlos area.
We are currently accepting new members for our Summer season. Join us!
During rehearsals we cover the fundamentals of flute and ensemble playing, intonation, rhythm, technique, and concert music.
