Professional Flute Choir

Sarah Jackson on piccolo

The Professional Flute Choir, coordinated by Pamela Youngblood, is an auditioned group of professional flutists who come together to perform at the NFA Convention after four rehearsals. Conductor Clyde Mitchell led the group masterfully through a challenging program that included two world premieres by Daniel Kessner and Peter Senchuk, the latter with soloist Sarah Jackson on piccolo. The program also included works by Nathan Tanouye, Gay Kahkonen, John Buckley, Jen McLachlen, and David Gunn.
