Join the largest flute symphony in the nation!

Summer after summer, Flute Symphony players come to South Shore Conservatory to meet and perform with some of the area’s best professional and amateur flutists.

The program acquaints students with a variety of music styles, from baroque and classical, to “pop” and jazz, and introduces the music of present-day composers. Students gain stronger skills in reading, intonation, listening, breathing, improvisation, phrasing and musicianship, and learn to think in terms of harmony as well as melody.

"Flute Symphony has been the highlight of my summer for the past few years. It's a really fun way to interact with other flute players of many different back grounds. It's a very welcoming environment and really helps you grow as a player."
