     Our new outreach program will get its start in November! We want to take our flute music into senior living facilities and nursing homes every 6 to 8 weeks. All GCFS members are welcome and encouraged to participate. Bonnie Svetlik and Ann Droste are co-chairmen.

     The first program will be given at Marymount Place (next door to Marymount Hospital) in Garfield  Heights at 2:00 on Sunday, November 4th. We will rehearse on Friday, November 2nd at 7 pm - location to be determined by the number of participants.  Music will be available before the rehearsal so all can be prepared.

     If you would like to participate, please email Ann at  by Friday, October 19th. We hope to have at least a dozen flutists to make a flute choir. If you would like to be part of the group, but are unable to make it these dates, please let us know.

     This is a wonderful opportunity for us to use music to brighten the day for those who can't get "out and about" like we can. Please join us if you can!



Sat, April 6, 2019 at 12:30

location: 21049 Colby Rd in Shaker Heights

The roundtable meetings will focus on education, where flute teachers and non-teachers alike can share information and ideas on how to improve our flute playing and performance skills.
