encouraging singing, foot tapping, humming, and clapping
• friendly, clear introductions to each piece along with interesting trivia about the music and composers
• interesting arrangements of familiar melodies along with a few new pieces to appreciate.
• introductions to each instrument as it gets a chance to shine

final applause has faded
We tailor our pr ograms to our audience. Our most popular program, CAFE Blend, includes seasonal favorites mixed with patriotic and folk song medleys, golden oldies, whimsical pieces, jazz standards, and familiar classical melodies. We can also customize a
concert around a special community event!
NEW! "Fascinating Flutes” lecture/demonstration
Two CAFE members will present an interactive, educational demonstration about the flute family and flute culture. Participants will see and hear all five members of the silver flute family as well as flutes constructed from clay, plastic, bone, and bamboo. Myths, history, and local stories will be covered in this memorable Powerpoint presentation. Packaged with a CAFE concert, audiences will also enjoy an educational preview of the upcoming CAFE program. "Fascinating Flutes" is perfect for a community gathering, lifelong learning class, or lecture series.
