Flute StreetFlute Street is Toronto’s Professional Flute Choir, whose players employ the full range of instruments from piccolo through treble, concert, alto, contralto, bass, contrabass and even the double contrabass flutes. Recently returned from their invitation to perform at the first International Low Flutes Festival in Washington D.C., this season includes a three-concert series, performing music from the rapidly expanding repertoire of exciting original flute choir compositions, sprinkled with a few transcriptions and well-crafted settings of folk songs, jazz and popular tunes. Audiences have been delighted to hear world and Canadian premières and featured international guest soloists such as piccoloists, Christine Beard and Kelly Via and low flutes specialist, Peter Sheridan. This year’s concerts include a variety of venues: “Masterpieces” on October 27 at St. Peter’s and St. Simon’s Church; January 19 at the Heliconian Hall with Mary Ann Archer, the former piccolo soloist with the Metropolitan Opera; and the highly anticipated return of French piccolo sensation, Jean-Louis Beaumadier on April 9 at Christ Church, Deer Park.
