Join Willow Flute Ensemble for an enjoyable hour of music for children. We’ll start with an introduction to the flute family, including piccolo, concert flute, alto, and bass flutes. We’ll then play “My Dog Pooh”, a musical story about a most unusual dog. This is followed by five short movements of “Chats”, a flute quartet about different types of cats. After some “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” and “Dolphins”, we’ll close with another musical story about “Three Crotchety Cats”, with narration by Duane Sullivan.
