Sonata for 8 Flutes
by Phyllis Louke
I played bass flute in the premiere of this work by the Professional Flute Choir at the NFA Convention in New York in 1996. It's one of my favorites in the flute choir repertoire. I conduct Rose City Flute Choir in Portland, Oregon, and we have performed the piece several times over the years.
In 2001, I also performed in the premiere of Downes' Flute Symphony by the Professional Flute Choir in Washington, DC.
