Traditionally a members-only recital, this year we wanted to open up the exclusive "Just Us" and invite more people to the party!

We would like your flute choir to join us this year to help put on a FLUTE CHOIR SHOWCASE.
Each choir will play for about 10 minutes. We will end the afternoon's event with a large, grand-scale performance with all choirs participating together. We have enlisted the help of the wonderful George Pope to conduct the large flute choir.

If you would like to play with the GCFS flute choir, we invite you to become a member!
