The Northern Iowa Flute Choir was formed in 1986 by UNI Professor of Flute Angeleita Floyd for students to develop their ensemble skills, perform challenging repertoire, and to synthesize the music making experience. The Flute Choir uses instrumentation spanning the six-octave range of the flute family, featuring piccolo, “C” flute, alto flute in “G,” bass flute and contra-bass flute. Under the direction of Dr. Floyd, the Flute Choir has performed for numerous functions within the School of Music, the University, and the surrounding community. Performances include the GBPAC Gala Grand Opening Concert, Scholarship Benefit Concerts, Northern Festival of Bands, Christmas Camaraderie, dedication of the Great Reading Room—Seerley Hall, UNI Foundation luncheons, Sartori Hospital Festival of Trees, Hartman Reserve Fall Festival, Cedar Valley Nature Trail Concert Series, and numerous Iowa Flute Festivals. The ensemble consists of music majors and non-music majors alike and provides a challenging opportunity for flutists to explore the Flute Choir repertoire. The Northern Iowa Flute Choir is featured on YouTube performing Ian Clarke’s “Within!”
