The Finger Lakes Flute Circle is meeting Wednesday, 18 June 2014, 6:30 pm, at the Brookside School (Brighton Parks & Recreation), 1680 S Winton Rd, Rochester, NY 14618. This entrance on Winton Rd is south of Westfall Rd. The official address, 220 Idlewood Rd, takes you through the neighborhood streets to the alternate entrance on the other side of the building. Note that this is an earlier date than usual, and a Wednesday!

Beginners are welcome and greatly encouraged to come and play! We will be playing Native American flute, drums, and hand percussion. Beginner flutes will be available to try out. The Native American flute is an easy to play instrument, and on their first day ever, complete beginners are playing beautiful music!

A $5 contribution is requested (room rental and Meetup fees).

We will make great music together, and have a lot of fun. We look forward to seeing you!

Current meeting schedules are listed on the Blog and Meetup websites:
