La Flûte Harmonique
"La Flûte Harmonique" was founded in 2004 by Russell Gillespie to encourage flautists over the age of 21 to gain experience in ensemble playing. It is the first of its kind to be run in Cheshire and is a voluntary, non-profit making ensemble dedicated to the musical enrichment of the area and its surrounding communities.
A flute choir is a musical ensemble composed entirely of flutes. The ensemble includes piccolos, concert flutes, alto and bass flutes. All the members are at least Grade 5 standard and come from many career backgrounds and locations.
Under the umbrella of "La Flûte Harmonique", opportunities arise for a wide variety of ensemble playing, resulting in members independently forming their own duos, quartets etc. For both Adult flute choirs there is an initial trial period of three months to determine mutual suitability.
Potential new members are most welcome to come and listen or even join in, with a view to permanent membership subject to there being an appropriate vacancy.
A variety of musical styles ranging from Baroque to Contemporary are included in the repertoire and concerts of "La Flûte Harmonique".
These are held on the THIRD MONDAY of each month from 7.30pm-9.30pm at :
St Peter's Church Community Hall.
Cheshire CW1 4RD.

"The chief benefit from LFH has been finding friends who share my love of flute playing, and who have supported me on my journey to become a confident team player.
"Within the group I have found warmth, vitality, friendship and continuing support and encouragement."
"If the "raison d'être" of this flute choir is to summon up confidence, friendship and the undeniable enjoyment of playing in an ensemble, then it has succeeded in every way beyond my expectations."
"Membership has provided me with so many learning opportunities…. from attending Residential Workshops and Master Classes, to tackling and preparing for grade examinations and even playing as a Soloist."
"Now I start looking forward to the next rehearsal as soon as the most recent one has finished, planning the practice I need to improve between then and now."
