The Penn Flutes fall program, "Renewal", features works depicting varying facets of transformation: Jonathan Cohen’s “Blueshift Red” explores the bending of light and color that occurs when astral bodies approach each other with great speed; Maurice Ravel’s beloved “Bolero” illustrates the ensemble’s ability to create evolving phases of color and texture through just two contrasting themes; “Autumn Vespers” and “Cloud Images” paint sound images of seasonal changes on the ground and in the sky. Some seasonal musical treats will bring the audience into the fall season.
One of the largest active flute choirs in the United States, Penn Flutes includes flutists from the ranks of Penn undergraduates, graduate students, faculty and staff, as well as members of the surrounding community. Performances take place both on campus and around the region alongside our community partners. Repertoire spans a variety of genres from the Renaissance through Modern eras, and select members may be offered the opportunity to perform on piccolo as well as bass and alto flutes.
