The Davis Youth Flute Choir will perform its 28th annual Summer Music Concert, featuring both classical and jazz music, at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, July 21, at the Brunelle Performance Hall at Davis High School, 315 W. 14th St. The choir, under the direction of Maquette Kuper, performs with piccolo, flute, alto flute and bass flute, creating a unique sound.

The group will premiere a new work, “Jewish Holiday Suite,” by composer Lawrence Frank. Some of the other classical selections include “Bumblebee Fantasy” by Ann Cameron Pearce and “Irish Tunes for Pennywhistle and Flutes” by Dennis Ritz.

Fredrick Lange, director of bands at Davis High School, will lead the group in a collection of jazz pieces, including Duke Ellington’s “Satin Doll,” Claude Bolling’s “Hannah’s Theme” and some ragtime tunes. Performing with the group for the jazz selections will be a combo of former members of the DHS Jazz Band, including Neil Heaton, a 2010 graduate, on piano; Stefan Waterstraat, a 2011 graduate, on drums; and Andy McCauley, a 2011 graduate, on bass.

The Davis Youth Flute Choir represented the city of Davis in the first cultural exchange between Davis and sister city Inuyama, Japan, in June 2008. Last summer, the flute choir was one of three youth choirs to be invited to perform at the National Flute Association Convention in Anaheim.

The choir has accepted an invitation to perform in Sanju, South Korea — another Davis sister city — in June 2012. 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 in various Davis and Woodland venues.

Senior Choir members are Nick Cooper, Marta Drown, Jing Feng, Lillian Feng, Joanna Fung, Lisa Kitson, Elizabeth Lee, Sean Lee, Karene Liu, Samantha Lung, Emma Maul, Linda Su and Emma Wu.

Junior Choir members are Elise Chu, Will Forrest, Anita Hashimoto, Sehyun Hwang, Nicole Lim, Nerissa Payne and Hanneh Siemen.

Advance tickets, available at the Davis Art Center, 1919 F St., are $8 for adults and $5 for students. Tickets at the door will be $10 each.

For more information, call the Art Center at (530) 756-4100.
