Flute Choir.

Play flute beautifully together today!

Flute Choir.

As part of the Dearborn Youth Symphony Ensembles, Dearborn Youth Symphony Intermediate Flute Choir and Advanced Flute Choir are unique ensembles composed only of flutes.

As the conductor of both choirs, Donna Olkowski manages the audition, music selection, rehearsal, and direction of both groups. This music performance blend provides the unique opportunity to focus on one instrument in an ensemble setting.

The Intermediate Flute Choir rehearsals overlap with the Advanced Flute Choir, and the choirs often perform together as a Combined Flute Choir.

The Advanced Flute Choir is conducted by Donna Olkowski and exclusively features flutists playing numerous parts in an arrangement. Selection for this ensemble is competitive, and Advanced Flute Choir musicians frequently hold chairs in the Symphony Orchestra, also. The Advanced Flute Choir often combines with the Intermediate Flute Choir for performances.

The Dearborn Youth Symphony Flute Choirs are part of the Dearborn Youth Symphony (DYS) Ensembles.
