The High School Flute Choir is a Community School of the Arts ensemble, featuring flutists from Kenwood, Northeast and Clarksville high schools. They will open the concert with a set of Renaissance dances composed by Tielman Susato. The concert also will feature works such as “Variations on a Theme by Haydn” by Johannes Brahms, “On Eagles' Wings” by Jared Spears and “Dance of the Sugarplum Fairy” by Peter Tchaikovsky.

This segment of the program also will feature a flute duet performed by Jillian Storey and Sarah Kim from the opera “Lakme” by Leo Delibes.

The second half of the performance will feature the APSU Flute Choir performing works such as “Concerto for Flutes” by Georg Philipp Telemann, “Quatour” by Pierre Max Dubois, “Lady Radnor's Suite” by Hubert H. Parry, “maya” by Ian Clarke and “Rituale e Danza” by Jeffrey Wood.

Rituale e Danza” was written specifically for the Flute Choir by Wood, a professor of music at APSU. “Students are accustomed to thinking of Wood as their music theory teacher. By performing his music, students have the opportunity to become acquainted with him as a composer as well,” Vanarsdel said.
