Flute players will flourish in this ensemble, designed for adults with previous experience. Being part of a wind group offers players a different experience from a mixed ensemble. By focusing on intonation, rhythm, tone, and technique, students learn how to blend within the ensemble to create a unique and beautiful sound. End-of-semester performances enhance the learning experience.  Instructor Mariellen Sears is a flutist with the Cape Symphony, with over two decades of Flute Choir experience.
