Flute Street, Toronto’s Professional Flute Choir, is comprised of first-class musicians performing on the full range of instruments from piccolo through G treble, concert, alto, bass, contrabass and the subcontrabass flutes. Often featuring the less-explored colours of the rarer-sized flutes, Flute Street members present concerts of refreshing new repertoire balanced with traditional transcriptions and well-crafted settings of folk songs, jazz and popular tunes. Flute Street continues to offer world and Canadian premieres and appearances of outstanding international guest artists. Recently, a collaboration with Les Flûtistes de Montréal involved performances in Montreal and the Laurentians. Opening this year's four-concert season is “A Canadian Celebration” on October 14. On November 19, American flutist Christine Beard will be our featured soloist and on March 6 will be the return of the dazzling piccolo recording sensation, Jean-Louis Beaumadier. Our final, not-to-be-missed concert promises to be an extravaganza of contrabass flutes.
