    Flute Choir Descriptions

    When you register for this event, you’ll see 3 registration types. You can use these descriptions to help you decide which registration type to choose.

    • SDFG Sponsored Student/Adult Amateur Choir: This choir is for students who can comfortably play most major scales in two octaves, keep a steady beat and read rhythms with relative ease.
    • SDFG Sponsored Teacher Choir:  This choir is for any teacher who wishes to share their time and talent during the concert, and we encourage you to also bring your own studio’s privately organized flute choir.
    • Privately Organized Flute Choir:  This registration type is for any flute choir organized outside of the San Diego Flute Guild. Examples of this could be a group of friends from school coming together for a tune, or a teacher organizing their own studio flute choir. If you have a group - any level, any age, this is for you! Holiday music is not required. Limited spots are available for privately organized groups, so we recommend signing up early!

    • SDFG Student/Amateur Flute Choir: Friday, November 15, 2019
