University of Central Oklahoma Flute Ensemble In Concert at Edmond Library

What could be more refreshing than a break in the middle of the afternoon for some light music? 

Take a few minutes on Saturday, March 7, 2009, for a short Afternoon Concert by the UCO Flute Ensemble at the Edmond Library, 10, S. Boulevard. The student musicians will play from 2-3pm.

“These are students of UCO’s Dr. Emily Butterfield,” said Edmond librarian Ronna Davis.  “Most of us don’t get to hear flutes very often, so this concert will be a rare treat.”

Dr. Butterfield is UCO’s first full-time flute teacher.  She came to Edmond in August 2008.  She’s the winner of the 2005 National Flute Association’s Ph.D. Dissertation competition.

“The purpose of the Ensemble,” Dr. Butterfield said, “is to perform flute literature, develop students’ skills in chamber music playing, and provide community outreach.  We perform a variety of music including selections that require all the instruments of the flute family.”

  The UCO Flute Ensemble’s Afternoon Concert will appeal to all lovers of classical music.  The concert is free and no pre-registration is necessary.
