TWU's Monster Flute Choir Concert to feature Brave Combo
DENTON — The Texas Woman’s University and Brookhaven College flute choirs will join forces with Denton’s own Grammy®-winning Brave Combo for a rollicking global journey during the 17th annual Monster Flute Choir Concert.
Audience members are encouraged to come in costume for the concert, which begins at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 2, in the Margo Jones Performance Hall, located at Oakland and Sawyer streets on TWU’s Denton campus. Admission is free. For more information, call (940) 898-2500.
The opening segment of the concert will feature Brave Combo woodwind specialist Jeffrey Barnes joining the 30 flutists of the combined flute choirs on selections including “Monk’s Groove,” “Under the Sun” and “A Day or Two Ago.”
In the second portion of the concert, the flute choir will accompany Brave Combo in the style of a symphony orchestra pops concert. Featured pieces include “The Denton Polka,” “Flying Saucer Polka,” “Civilized” and the “Busy Office Rhumba.”
“The students benefit from interacting with people in such a different aspect of music,” said Dr. Pamela Youngblood, TWU music professor and director of the combined TWU and Brookhaven flute choirs. “I think it also creates something special for the audience.”
