The Lafayette Flute Choir, Inc. was founded in 1974 and incorporated in 1978 to educate and promote interest in and appreciation of the flute family and its literature. The Lafayette Flute Choir is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization and is celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2014.
We provide a continuing organization for ensemble flute playing and performance of music written specifically for the flute. The choir has been in continuous operation since 1974 and currently boasts a roster of 44 active members ranging from serious high school students to retired music teachers. The choir is currently conducted by flutist Harriet Coppoc, who is also the choir’s founder.
A longstanding fixture in the Greater Lafayette, Indiana arts community, the Lafayette Flute Choir, Inc. performs for community events such as the Lafayette and West Lafayette Farmers’ Markets, the Downtown Lafayette Gallery Walk and a reception for the newly renovated West Lafayette Public Library. For many years we have participated in the Religious Arts Festival’s annual “Music of the Faiths” concert. We also routinely play at area nursing homes, churches, weddings and other private events. We are members of the Tippecanoe Arts Federation and the National Flute Association’s Roster of American Flute Choirs.
The Flute Choir performs a wide range of music repertoire, with pieces written for it from the 18th to the 21st centuries and arrangements of all kinds of music from baroque to jazz.
