‘Flute Force’ concert Friday in Convocation Hall

Founded in 1981, Flute Force has distinguished itself as America’s foremost flute quartet.

Musical America has called the group “an extremely persuasive advocate for the flute quartet medium: four top-quality players in a perfectly balanced and expressive ensemble.” Flute Force has performed extensively in the United States and Canada, maintaining a presence on the chamber music scene by offering innovative and varied programs, and continuing their dedication to virtuosic performances. They have mined the existing original musical literature, created their own transcriptions and premiered a substantial number of new works. Each performer plays all the instruments of the flute family — piccolo, flute, alto and bass flutes — sometimes in a single concert.

In addition to treats for flute lovers, the quartet will also introduce “Bookmobile for Dreamers” with added visualizations and theremin.

The concert will take place Friday, Oct. 18 at 8 p.m. in Convocation Hall (Room 213).

Tickets are $20, $15 for seniors and $5 for students. Please call 905-525-9140 ext. 24246 or email Concerts@mcmaster.ca for more information.
