    I'm wondering how rare flute choirs really are and this come across my computer. Check out the Flute Choir of Atlanta. It looks like many of the performers play more than one flute. :ugeek:

    Peter Schickele has composed a couple works for flue choirs: Monochrome I and Monochrome V -- both for 8 flutes, with some piccolo work.

    As I've said in a lot of places, I like Schickele.

    However, I've not heard a "flute ensemble" or "flute quartet" like a saxophone ensemble/quartet. It'd be interesting, I'd think.

    Flute Choir's seem to be quite popular at colleges. I haven't really heard of any classical flute choirs in the Chicago area made up of professionals.
