Are you looking for more opportunities to play your flute? We’re always looking for new members to join our group. If you are keen to play in a friendly environment, join us every other Wednesday at Whitchurch Methodist Church.
This month’s featured member, Cardiff Amateur Flute Ensemble (CAFE), is always looking for like-minded new members to join their group! Since forming in 1997 Cardiff Amateur Flute Ensemble has given adult learners the opportunity to meet and practice with other flautists.
Their members come from a range musical backgrounds – people who have played since school, those who have taken up the flute in the last 2-3 years and music teachers. What they all have in common is the desire to get together and play with other flautists.
Chair of the group, Abigail Charles, said “The great thing about CAFE is that it gives flute players the opportunity to come together to play music specifically written for flutes.
“We make sure that people have parts to play they feel comfortable with but we also accommodate players who want to challenge themselves.”
CAFE is a small group but continues to grow. Last year they joined up with another Making Music member, Flautissimo, who are based in Southampton and toured Cardiff with CAFE.
Abigail continued: “Playing with Flautissimo has definitely inspired us to challenge ourselves more. We are looking to put on a Christmas concert and we’ll share details soon.”
The group meets every two weeks on a Wednesday at 7pm. For more information visit www.cafeflutes.co.uk or follow them on Twitter @cafeflutes.
