The College of Saint Rose Flute Ensemble was inaugurated fall of 1999 by Dr. Yvonne Chavez Hansbrough, Professor of Music. Since then the ensemble has grown from five to over ten players and has appeared at several Skidmore Flute Festivals and performances at Saint Rose. Membership is open to both music majors and non-majors and provides a positive and enriching musical experience for flutists. The ensemble explores music from the Renaissance period to modern eras. Instrumentation includes piccolos, flutes, alto flutes, and bass flute in trios, quartets and large flute choirs.  Seniors are featured as soloists or conductors in their final semester of participation in the ensemble.


The Saint Rose Flute Ensemble is open to both music majors and non-music majors.  The ensemble meets for rehearsals on Mondays at 2:15-3:30 4PM on Mondays  in Room 304 of the Massry Center for the Arts.   You must register for Chamber Music Flute: MUS 283 section 01 or 02.   Non-music majors, please contact me for more information
