Repertoire List – Flute Choir

Repertoire Recommendations for Flute Choir

Music selection is a very personal thing.  I have tried to give some information about the difficulty level of the music listed, but just because a piece is listed as “Easy”, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s not worthy of being played by a professional ensemble.  Good music is good music.  What I’ve tried to list here is music that I like and think is well-written and well-scored for flute ensembles.  My taste is pretty eclectic, and you’ll find a mixture of arrangements of familiar tunes, transcriptions, as well as a LOT of original music written for flute ensembles.
