'Adult flute players, with an approximate standard of Grade 7 or above, will be welcome to apply ... We invite all potential applicants to come along for a taster session to see if they would like to join us ... We meet together to play and rehearse a wide variety of music arranged for flutes (including piccolo, standard C flute, alto and bass) and from time to time we perform at concerts and other gigs.'

 

A flute choir for adult learners and those returning to the instrument. Alto flute and Piccolo available. Occasional performances at local events.'

 

'Running since 1997, CAFE Flutes (Cardiff Amateur Flute Ensemble) has been playing many different varieties of flute music for over 20 years. The ensemble has gone through several changes over the years but currently we have around 20 members ... Most of our members play Concert Flutes but we are fortunate to have a bass flute player, alto flute players, piccolo players and some members who themselves or their partners play other instruments. Although we are essentially a flute group, when giving concerts we sometimes include the skills of partners or family members to add variety to the programme.'

 

'We are an award-winning amateur flute orchestra ... With a full range of eight different types of flute - from piccolo down to subcontrabass in G - we play more instruments than you might think. Accompanied by a full range of percussion, we are able to achieve the most orchestral sound possible ... Although we have many experienced players, we also have a number of learners of all ages. We are always keen to hear from players of all abilities, as well as absolute beginners who may be interested in learning. The orchestra is available to play concerts for your school, church or any other event; and can be a novel way of fundraising for your own organisation.'

 

'Formed in 1935 by a group of miners from the two villages of Easfield and Harthill ... We participate in events such as the Biggar Little Festival, Glasgow Music Festival, the Scottish Amateur Flute Association competitions. We also aim to give back to our local community through concerts in nursing homes, churches etc.'

 

‘We welcome flautists from across Hampshire, and with the instruments owned by our group provide a unqiue opportunity for our members to gain experience playing alto, bass and contrabass flutes ... We rehearse and perform much music from our extensive library of challenging repertoire written specifically for flute choir, many of which have been written specially for Flautissimo, together with excellent arrangements of other works for flute choir by our own members, as well as selections from those which are commercially available. Our repertoire includes classical, jazz and extended techniques ... If you are a beginner or rusty player, or below Grade 5, please come and join our additional flute choir Piccolissimo!’

'We are a friendly group of amateur flautists who meet to rehearse weekly and give regular public performances.'

 

'It was always a constitutional rule that FFC would try its very hardest to be totally non-elitist and encourage everyone to come along, regardless of age, experience or ability. There are no auditions to join and people drop in and out of the group according to their own priorities. We have a constant core of about 30 players and we play about 3 concerts per year, raising monies for local charities or deserving causes ... Our repertoire is highly eclectic – anything goes here – film scores, TV tunes, standard classical repertoire, Jazz and much, much more. We try hard to please everyone – it’s not always possible, but we do our best!'

 

'Formed in 2008, Opal Flutes is a friendly South London flute choir based in East Dulwich. We welcome flautists of all ages and abilities - come along and meet other flautists, make new friends, try an alto or a bass flute, improve your sight-reading and of course get plenty of regular playing!'

 

'Playing the flute can be a solitary occupation, particularly for adults. Many adults find that their instruments are unused and musical talents forgotten after school or college, when the pressures of careers and family take hold. Our aim is to give amateur flute players, especially (though not exclusively) adults, a club at which they can meet to play music together and revitalise their skills.'

 

‘Made up of a number of local flute players who meet ... to play ensemble music. Our line up includes alto, bass, contr'alto and contra bass flutes, and we have a new arrival - a sub contra bass flute! This gives us an unprecedented range! Please browse our site and contact us if you are interested in joining us or would like us to play for your event.’

 

'Formed by alto flute player, Carla Rees, in 2003, rarescale has gained an international reputation for new music for flute-based chamber ensemble. The group collaborates with composers of all styles and ages to develop new repertoire, and has an open call for scores.'
