E Pluribus Flutum is a joyous celebration of the unity and creativity of the flute community. Featuring folk tunes and dances as well as a finale written for the occasion by Katherine Hoover, this 10-minute set of pieces for up to 100 dancing flutists is inspired by the Beijing Olympics, Busby Berkeley musicals and flash mob dancing. Conceived of and created by Zara Lawler. With music by Katherine Hoover.
E PLURIBUS FLUTUM in YOUR COMMUNITY:
E Pluribus Flutum is an exciting performance piece for flute choirs, student groups, and professionals alike. It can be performed in its entirety, or in part, and is adaptable for groups of 8 to 100 flutists. The music is simple yet interesting, and is enjoyed by players of all levels. Preparing E Pluribus Flutum is a fun project that builds team spirit in any group, and gently encourages players to new heights of performance.
