Date: December 15, 2019

Time: 6:00-8:00pm

Location: Peñasquitos Lutheran Church, San Diego, CA 92129

We're so excited to finally announce our 2019 Winona Grant Holiday Flute Choir Concert for December 15th! This year, we're moving a little farther south to Peñasquitos Lutheran Church. We have several ways for you to get involved: 

1. Join our SDFG-sponsored choir for students and adult amateurs! All levels are welcome, but we do ask that you can play most scales in two octaves, keep a steady beat, and read rhythms with relative easy. Rehearsals will be held in the weeks leading up to the concert. 

2. Register your pre-formed group! We would love to have a diverse group of flute ensembles join us for this fun evening. All types of groups are welcome and holiday music is not required. 

3. If you're a teacher, join us in the SDFG Teachers' Choir! We'll have one rehearsal a few days before the concert. Specific date and location for the rehearsal coming soon.
