The San Diego Flute Guild's Fall Members' Recital is a wonderful opportunity for all members of the Flute Guild to perform a solo, a piece for flute and piano, or come together as a flute ensemble.

The performance is open to members of all ages and stages, and we love the variety! We encourage students, teachers, flute choirs, adult amateurs, and everyone who loves sharing the joy of playing flute to take advantage of this performance opportunity.

Light refreshments are served at the end. These recitals are free to all and open to the public.

Holiday Flute Choir Concert

The San Diego Flute Guild is happy to host the annual Winona Grant Holiday Flute Concert, with three flute choirs sponsored by SDFG. It is open to any and all flutists and flute choirs... the more the merrier! We welcome friends, family and flute lovers to attend the concert and help us celebrate the holiday season!

NEW THIS YEAR: The SDFG Sponsored Intermediate and Advanced choirs will have two rehearsal locations to choose from, one in north county, and one in south county.
