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 Choir is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization and celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2014.
We provide a continuing organization for ensemble flute playing and performance of music written specifically for the flute. We have been in continuous operation since 1974 and currently boast a roster of 30 active members ranging from serious high school students to retired music teachers.
A longstanding fixture in the Greater Lafayette, Indiana arts community, the Lafayette Flute Choir performs for community events such as the Lafayette and West Lafayette Farmers’ Markets, the Downtown Lafayette Gallery Walk and 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 Choir performs a wide-ranging repertoire, including pieces from the 18th to the 21st centuries and arrangements of all kinds of music from baroque to jazz.
