SMU Young Artist Flute Orchestra Audition

For Advanced Middle and High School Flutists

The SMU Young Artist Flute Orchestra is a new performing group for advanced middle and high school flutists in the DFW area. The group rehearses once per week during the school year, aiming to inspire young flutists to be better musicians, learn how to play in an ensemble, and learn how to use their talents for service in the community. We aim to have the highest level of music making possible while having fun.

Fall 2020 Rehearsal and Concert Schedule TBD
