Davis Youth Flute Choir to perform Spring Concert

The Davis Youth Flute Choir will perform its annual Spring Concert at 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 2, at the Davis Arts Center, 1919 F St.

The flute choir will unveil plans for its tour to China in 2015 and this concert will mark the beginning of the group’s efforts to fundraise for that trip. Choir members will perform on piccolo, flute, alto flute and bass flute.

The program features a couple of works. The first is “Harmony in Blue and Gold” by Eric Ewazen, a New York composer. He wrote this work in 2012 for a Washington flute quarter group, Femme Flutale.

The other piece is Will Offermans’ “Dance with Me.” The flute choir saw this work performed at the National Flute Association Convention in New Orleans last summer with Offermans leading the NFA’s High School Flute Choir. It is a choreographed work where the flutists actually dance while playing their instruments.

Other works on the program include “Songs of the Southwest” arranged by Emily Senchuk, “Thunder and Lightning Polka” by Johann Strauss arranged by Gundrum Hinze and “Songs of the Ocean” by Rhohei Hirose arranged by Ann Cameron Pierce.

The Davis Youth Flute Choir is in its 30th year. It has performed two world tours — Japan (2008) and South Korea (2012). The choir last performed at the 2013 NFA convention in New Orleans.

The choir holds a summer flute camp to include junior and senior high students. For more information about signing up for the 2014 camp, visit davisyouthflutechoir.org.

The Davis Youth Flute Choir trains young flute players to achieve the excellence of high musical standards through learning refined ensemble techniques and by exposure to varied and challenging repertoire from classical to jazz.

Performers in this year’s concert include Lemuel Chang, Elise Chu, Jenny Chung, Will Forest, Anita Hashimoto, Seyhun Hwang, Anysia, Lee, Nicole Lim, Karoline Magolske, Morgan Newton, Ale Ruiz-Jimenez, Linda Su, Krista Titensor, Sabrina Williams.

For more information, call the Davis Arts Center at 530-756-4100. Advance-purchase tickets, available at the center, are $8 general and $3 for students. Tickets at the door will be $10 general and $5 for students.
