RIT Flute Ensemble

The RIT Flute Choir and RIT Flute Ensemble provide weekly chamber and small ensemble experience for RIT flutists. Drawing from the vast repertoire of music for flute choir, students play a variety of music from different styles and perform several times a year. Open to all students, faculty, and staff flutists, members have the opportunity to play the entire family of flutes (C-flute, Piccolo, Alto Flute, and Bass flute).
