The ensemble will perform both modern and traditional repertoire using many members of the flute family, including the soprano flute, the alto flute and the bass flute.

"The addition of the larger flutes to the choir expands the range and depth of the music while still maintaining the beautiful blended timbres that only flutes can create," said conductor Juliana Overmier.

The ensemble includes Debbie Allen and Danna Howry of Ada, Kristen Auten and Rebekah Unruh of Ardmore, Rachael Bessert of Midwest City, Sarra Blok of Glencoe, Ashley Branscum of Checotah, Erin Burton and Ryan Kiehl of Oklahoma City, Ashley Cardwell of Mustang, Samantha Deskin of Oologah, Molly Hodges of Edmond and Jami Turner of Seminole.

Debbie Allen, Rebekah Unruh, Ashley Branscum and Ashley Cardwell are section leaders.
