Unfortunately, so far 2021 hasn’t turned out to be much better than 2020 but it hasn’t stopped CAFE Flutes!
We still haven’t been able to meet up in person to rehearse together yet but we continue to meet online and have even gained a new member.
In 2020, we did some digital projects to keep us all engaged. It definitely tested our technical skills as well as our musical ability but we were all pleased with the results. So much so, that after our Summer concert, we did it all again at Christmas!
We’re currently working on a Welsh Medley that has been arranged especially for us by one of our members. We’re really hoping that we might be able to play it in the same room as each other in the not too distant future.
We’ve also recently been awarded some funding via Tŷ Cerdd to enable us to carry on improving our technical skills through online workshops run by our MD, Kristina Lennox. If you’d like to come along and join CAFE Flutes at our next online meeting, you can email the address in the poster below.
Cafe flutes are proud to invite you to join our first ever Virtual Summer Concert! Although we are unable to meet at present our members have still been playing and practising, and we have brought their performances together to produce a Virtual Concert. The concert will be streamed live on Youtube on 12th September 2020 at 7.15pm, we hope you will be able to join us to watch!
We start back after our summer break on Wednesday 4th September 2019. If you are a flautist in or near Cardiff, and looking for somewhere fun and friendly to play your flute, come along and join us at 7pm at Whitchurch Methodist Church Hall, Penlline Road, Cardiff. No auditions necessary, just bring your flute and music stand and join in! Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Do you wish you had more opportunity to play your flute? Would you like to make friends, learn new music and have fun in perfect harmony? Did you enjoy playing the flute in school or university but haven’t been able to find a chance to play since? Or are you an adult learner looking for a chance to improve your playing? If your answer is “YES” then come along and join us
We are holding an Open Rehearsal on 25th July at 7.30pm, doors open and refreshments will be available from 7pm at Whitchurch Methodist Church, Cardiff. Come along and support us and hear what kind of music we are working on at present, admission is free, but donations are welcome towards our group’s fundraising. For more information email email@example.com.
For Make Music Day UK 2018 a small group from Cafe flutes played in front of City Hall, Cardiff. It was an interesting experience battling against the wind, as well as playing some different pieces which were better suited to a smaller group.
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.
