The Davis Youth Flute Choir, under the direction of Maquette Kuper, will present its 31st annual Summer Flute Camp Concert at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, July 17, in the atrium of the Davis Arts Center, 1919 F St.

The choir performs both classical and jazz music, the latter under the directions of Fredrick Lange. The concert will feature Lange’s new arrangements for the group.

The summer flute camp offers an opportunity for the flutists to work for several hours each day for a week and a half and to study both classical and jazz music. Choir members perform on piccolo, flute, alto flute and bass flute and are accompanied by string bass and drums for the jazz portion.

The camp is open to all flutists in Davis and the Sacramento region. Many are members of the year-round choir who toured last August in New Orleans where they performed at the National Flute Association Convention.

The Davis Youth Flute Choir has completed two international tours, including performing as representatives of the United States at the World’s Fair Expo 2012 in Yeosu, South Korea, and also in Sangju, Davis’ South Korean sister city. The choir is planning a tour to China in June 2015 to Beijing; Wuxi, another sister city of Davis; and Shanghai.

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 as well as giving community service concerts in various Davis and Woodland venues.

Lange, retired DHS band director, has two new jazz works for this year’s concert — “Eine Kleine Yiddishe Ragmusik” by Adam Gorb and “The Nonpareil” by Scott Joplin.

The classical portion of the concert will feature Sonny Burnette’s “Stained Glass Images” with seven movements each inspired by a particular internationally famous stained glass piece. An image of each window will be projected during the music.

Participating senior choir flutists are Megan Campbell, Lemuel Chang, Elise Chu, Evelynn Dominguez, Will Forest, Anita Hashimoto, Sehyun Hwang, Elizabeth Lee, Sean Lee, Nicole Lim, Karoline Magolske, Morgan Newton, Ale Ruiz-Jimenez, Jennifer Su, Linda Su, Krista Titensor, Sabrina Williams and Emma Wu.

Junior choir members are Mia Jones-Zamora, Christine Kim, Kevin Pan, Shivan Seneviratne and Daisy Sprenger. Accompanying combo members include Noah Wolfe on bass and Jacob Cross on drums.

Tickets at the door are $10 general and $5 for students. For will-call discount tickets, email maki.kuper@gmail.com by Wednesday, July 16. For further information, call the Davis Arts Center at 530-756-4100.

The choir is available to hire to perform at events and weddings. For more information on the Davis Youth Flute Choir, visit davisyouthflutechoir.org.
