McMaster School of the Arts – Free Lunchtime Concerts: Flute Force (Flute Quartet)

Founded in 1981, FLUTE FORCE has distinguished itself as America’s foremost flute quartet. As winner of the Artists International Competition, Flute Force was presented in its Carnegie Recital Hall debut in 1985. Musical America has called Flute Force “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 commissioned and premiered a substantial number of new works. Each performer plays all the flutes of the flute family: the piccolo, flute, alto and bass flutes-sometimes in a single concert.
