The concert will feature the LIFC’s Professional Flute Choir. This 16 piece ensemble, conducted by Deborah Schild, features all members of the flute family from the tiny piccolo to the large bass flute.

“Chocolate Mousse” by composer Nancy Wood features only alto and bass flutes to create its rich and tasty sound. “Rondo All Samba” featuring the themes of Mozart was specially “de-composed” for the Long Island Flute Club by Ray Osnato. For those looking to start their Halloween celebrations a day early, listen to the sounds of skeletons and spirits in “Dance Macabre”.
