Nashville Flute Choir 

When: Sun., Dec. 11, 2 p.m. 2011
While one can imagine a rhythmic banging of rocks or sticks at the early dawn of man, most authorities consider the flute to be the oldest musical instrument in the world. This local gathering of flautists is still a young concern, but they've certainly proven that theirs is no fly-by-night operation. Celebrating its 10th year, the Nashville Flute Choir is a collection of both amateur and professional musicians under the guidance of director Karen Mitchell. While most of us are used to hearing the ubiquitous concert flute pitched in the key of C, this is only one of many variations of the woodwind instrument, and this afternoon program of holiday-inspired songs will feature piccolos, alto flutes and even various versions of bass flutes.
