Flute choir, studio planning spring concert
The Southern Illinois Flute Choir and SIU Flute Studio plan to present a spring concert Friday night, May 5, in Carbondale.
The concert is set for 7:30 p.m. at the First United Methodist Church at 214 W. Main St. Admission is free.
The choir and studio are under the artistic direction of Dr. Douglas Worthen and assistant conductor Katrina Walczyk.
The ensemble includes the complete range of flutes, including contrabass, bass, alto, C flute and piccolo.
Members come from throughout Southern Illinois and the Southern Illinois University community to rehearse weekly, with a goal to provide a unique musical experience for the general public through semi-annual concerts.
The upcoming concert’s works are scheduled to include “Brandenburg Concerto No. 3” by J.S. Bach, “The Palms” by Jean-Baptiste Faure, “Flute Waltz” by Arthur Frackenpohl, “Charcoal Landscape” by Lisa Duke Lamb, and the traditional hymn “Amazing Grace.”
