WFU presents flute fest 2003

Wake Forest University’s department of music will sponsor its annual Flute Fest Nov. 2 at 3 p.m. in Brendle Recital Hall in Scales Fine Arts Center.

The concert features the Wake Forest University Flute Choir and the professional ensemble, the Silver Wind Flute Choir of Winston-Salem, both directed by Kathryn Levy. Levy is a flute instructor at Wake Forest and principal flute for the Winston-Salem Piedmont Triad Symphony.

The Wake Forest University Flute Choir will perform works by Offenbach, Joseph Bodin de Boismortier and Anne McGinty.

The Silver Wind Flute Choir’s program features works by Handel, Dvorák and Hayden as well as a special performance of Paul Bonneau’s “Divertissement.”

During the concert’s traditional ending, other area flutists and flute students of all ages will be invited to join the performers on stage to perform “Agnes Dei” from Gabriel Fauré’s “Requiem.”

The Silver Wind Flute Choir was founded in 1994 under the direction of Levy. The ensemble members are area performers and teachers.
