Davis Youth Flute Choir accepts summer camp applications

The Davis Youth Flute Choir, directed by flutist Maquette Kuper, is accepting applicants to join its annual summer Flute Camp, July 8-18. The choir will perform its 30th annual Summer Music Concert, featuring both classical and jazz music at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, July 18, in atrium of the Davis Art Center at 1919 F St.

There are two flute choir levels for students to join. The Junior Flute Choir is for students in grades 7-9 and the Senior Flute Choir is for students in grades 10-12. Students wishing to join the junior choir must be proficient on the instrument, read music well, perform all notes from low C to high G, and have a basic understanding of rhythm. Usually students who have completed one year of advanced band instruction at the elementary school level are qualified.

The Junior Choir trains students to improve ensemble skills through critical listening focusing on elements such as rhythm and intonation, and helping the student to be more highly aware of their individual part as it relates to the group. The Junior Choir students are also introduced to the alto and bass flutes.

This choir meets weekdays from 7:30 to 9 p.m. at the Davis Art Center, 1919 F St. To register, call the Davis Art Center at 530-756-4100 or go online to davisartcenter.org.

The Senior Flute Choir is for advanced flute students and performs both classical and jazz repertoire. Fredrick Lange, retired Davis High School director of bands, will lead the jazz portion of the concert. These students perform flute choir repertoire for piccolo, flute, alto flute and bass flute.

The Senior Flute Choir will meet weekdays from 2:30 to 5 p.m. A jazz rehearsal with the combo will take place at 4 p.m. Saturday, July 13, at the Art Center. The daily rehearsal place is to be announced. To sign up for the Senior Choir, contact Kuper at maki.kuper@gmail.com or go to davisyouthflutechoir.org to download the application.

In addition to the summer Flute Camp, the Davis Youth Flute Choir has a year-round advanced group that has toured Japan and South Korea, performed at the National Flute Association convention in Anaheim in 2010 and looks forward to performing at the convention this August in New Orleans.

The choir also organizes annual benefit concert performances that have raised funds for the music programs of Davis High School as well as the three junior high schools — Emerson, Harper and Holmes. Each December, the choir performs holiday music at the Sacramento International Airport and performs community service concerts in various Davis and Woodland venues.

The choir also is available to hire to perform at events and weddings.
