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, and bamboo.  Myths, history, and local stories will be covered in this unique, memorable 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.
