Holiday Harmonies for Hurricane Help!
The Long Island Flute Club is pleased to continue it’s tradition of presenting our annual Holiday Concerts. Once again the Flute Club will be presenting two concerts, one at each end of our Long Island community. Both concerts will feature a variety of seasonal classics that are guaranteed to put you in the spirit of the season. The sixteen member Flute Ensemble will feature all members of the flute family from piccolo to bass flute. The ensemble, directed by Lauren Osnato will play a variety of festive classics such as “The Nutcracker Suite” and “A Christmas Overture” to “Parade of the Wooden Soldiers” and “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer”. It’s a holiday celebration for children of all ages!
Our Suffolk County concert will be Saturday, December 1, 2012 at 3:00pm at the United Methodist Church of Lake Ronkonkoma.
