Our Mission Statement
The Kansas City Flute Choir is dedicated to providing a unique musical experience to flutists of all ages in the greater Kansas City area; to providing an outlet for flutists who are unable to find another school or community music ensemble in which to play; and, through performances and outreach education programs, to exposing Kansas City audiences and young musicians to variety of flutes and new innovative repertoire. Founded in 2005, the Kansas City Flute Choir is an equal opportunity organization devoted to promoting harmony, fellowship, and unity through music.
