Ann Pearce, founding member of the Raleigh Flute Choir, retired this summer after thirty-two years with the group. In addition to her years playing the flute and wielding the contrabass, Ann has made valuable contributions to the ensemble literature through her numerous arrangements and original compositions for flute choir. She will be missed!
Founded in 1986, the Raleigh Flute Choir is a chamber ensemble of professional flutists from central North Carolina. Utilizing the full complement of flutes from the tiny piccolo to the eight-foot-long contrabass, six octaves of notes with a variety of timbres combine to create rich harmonies and lush musical colors.
With four CDs to their credit and performances at such venues as The White House, National Flute Association conventions, Duke University Chapel, the Biltmore House, Colonial Williamsburg, and Piccolo Spoleto in Charleston (SC), the group has established itself as one of the nation’s leading flute choirs. The Raleigh Flute Choir is also a major sponsor of the Raleigh Area Flute Association, a non-profit organization of more than 300 student, amateur, and professional flutists from North Carolina and beyond.
