MURFREESBORO, Tenn. — The MTSU Flute Choir will present a free public concert for the entire family Saturday, Nov. 19, in Hinton Hall inside the university’s Wright Music Building.
“This concert is for all ages and is especially appropriate for children of any age,” said Rebecca Murphy, this year’s faculty director for the group, encouraging parents to bring their youngsters “and introduce them to the many beautiful sounds of the flute family.”

Murphy said the program will include “pieces with narration, music about butterflies and a composition with ‘boomwhackers.’” The latter are color-coded hollow tubes that are tuned to musical pitches according to length and played by striking them individually against a surface or arranging them together like a xylophone.
The MTSU Flute Choir is an enthusiastic group of flutists that perform a variety of musical styles ranging from baroque, classical and romantic to contemporary, popular and jazz. The Flute Choir currently includes about 16 musicians and showcases all five members of the flute family: the piccolo, C flute, alto flute, bass flute and contrabass flute.
