Flute Ensemble celebrates 20th anniversary

Special to The Log

The Flutes Furioso ensemble of Northwest Florida State College will perform a free concert at 2 p.m. April 19 in the Tyler Recital Hall at the Mattie Kelly Arts Center on the college’s Niceville campus.

This is the 20th Anniversary Season for “Flutes Furioso.” In celebration, the flute choir will premiere a new original piece by local composer, C. Cole Early, written especially for this anniversary. Other pieces to be performed at the concerts will be both original works for flute choir and popular arrangements.

Flutes Furioso is comprised of some of the area’s best high school, college and adult flutists, and uses several different members of the flute family, including alto and bass flutes.
