Flute Force has established itself as the leading ensemble of its type in the United States. Winner of the Artists International Competition, Flute Force was presented in its critically acclaimed Weill Recital Hall debut in 1985. Since then, Flute Force has performed throughout the U.S. with its repertoire for piccolo, standard “C”, alto, bass, and Baroque flutes which spans the centuries from the Renaissance to the present.

The quartet has performed extensively in the Northeast and the Midwest. Highlights have included performances featuring guest artists Julius Baker and Paula Robison, and concerts at Dartmouth College, Yale University, and Carnegie Recital Hall. Flute Force has been in residence at Macalester College, St. Paul; and the University of Iowa, Iowa City. Noted flutist, teacher, and scholar Betty Bang Mather compared the ensemble to “a fine string quartet” and described their performance as “a real work of art.”
