If you’ve never known that there are a variety of flutes (in unique sizes and sounds), then you’re in for a treat when you hear the Grace Notes Flute Ensemble whose instruments include the concert flute, alto flute, bass flute and contra bass flute. Add in the piccolo for good measure.

The Grace Notes Flute Ensemble will perform a concert at the Blount County Library on Thursday, April 14, at 7 p.m.

Organized 20 years ago, Grace Notes Flute Ensemble reaches out to all ages by being strongly committed to enriching and expanding the musical education of youth through performances and teaching. Their membership is open to capable young flautists.

Dr. Sue Swilley has been Director and Conductor of Grace Notes since 2003.  A retired Professor of Music at Carson Newman University, she teaches flute privately and is an Adjunct Professor of Flute and Flute Choir at Carson Newman College and Maryville College.

Open to the public, the concert is sponsored by the Blount County Public Library, located at 508 N. Cusick Street, Maryville, where services are an example of your tax dollars at work for you.
