The Davis Youth Flute Choir, directed by flutist Maquette Kuper, is accepting applicants to join its annual summer Flute Camp, which runs July 7-17.

The students will perform in the 31st annual Summer Music Concert, featuring both classical and jazz music, at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, July 17. The choir, directed by Kuper and jazz director Fredrick Lange, will perform in the atrium of the Davis Arts Center at 1919 F St.

There are two flute choir levels — the Junior Flute Choir for students in grades 7-9 and the Senior Flute Choir 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 will meet weekdays, Monday through Friday, July 7-11, and Monday through Thursday, July 14-17, from 7:30 to 9 p.m. at the Davis Arts Center. To register, call the center at 530-756-4100 or visit davisartscenter.org.

The Senior Flute Choir is for advanced flute students and performs both classical and jazz repertoire. Lange, who retired as director of bands from Davis High School, 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 Monday through Saturday, July 7-12, and Monday through Thursday, July 14-17, from 2:30 to 5 p.m. The daily rehearsals will be in the North Classroom at Congregation Bet Haverim at 1715 Anderson Road.

The grade divisions for these choirs are recommendations only. To sign up for the Senior Choir, go to davisyouthflutechoir.org to download the application or call 530-756-7380 to request an application by mail.

An Elementary Ensemble for young flutists in grades 4-6 is also offered through the Davis Arts Center.
