About Us

A member club of the National Flute Association, the Long

Island Flute Club was founded in 1984 to enrich the musical

lives of flutists in the greater New York area.

Serving professional and student flutists, the club offers a

diverse calendar of events each season. The acclaimed LIFC

concert series has become an integral part of the Long Island

arts scene, attracting an audience of flutists and the general


The LIFC offers several performing opportunities with our flute choir

program. The LIFC Professional Flute Choir and Honors Student Flute Choir

open our concert season each year, and the annual LIFC Holiday Flute

Ensemble Concerts benefit selected charities and is always well received by

the holiday audiences.

Our programs for students offer the opportunity for both musical growth

and community involvement. Our annual Flute Festival provides an

enjoyable day of performing master classes and workshops for all levels of

players. Our Student Recital program provides students from beginner to

grade 9 the opportunity to perform in concert at a local geriatric care

facility, providing valuable opportunities for community service.

For more advanced student flutists our High School competition, started in

1985, has been a stepping stone for many pursuing successful musical

careers. Additionally, the LIFC, with support from the Brannen-Cooper Fund,

has hosted several Master Class competition and concert weekends. Past

Master class/Concert programs have featured flutists Susan Milan, Michel

Debost and Donald Peck.

The LIFC is committed to expanding the flute choir repertoire, by

commissioning works from such respected composers as Katherine Hoover,

Elizabeth Brown, Catherine McMichael and Howard Buss. The LIFC was the

recipient of a 2008 Brannen-Cooper Fund grant for commissioning new

flute music.

Our e-newsletter, Flute Notes, informs members of upcoming events.
