Who We Are
Under the direction of Dan Parasky, The Duquesne University Flute Choir is a 10 member chamber group that meets once a week and performs original compositions and arrangements across a variety of musical styles. We welcome flutists from any degree program and feature the standard C flute as well as other instruments from the flute family including the piccolo, alto flute, bass flute, and contrabass flute. In addition to performing one themed concert a semester, we have also hosted master classes and collaborated with other flute groups in the Greater Pittsburgh Area. We have also performed at two National Flute Conventions (2022 – Chicago, IL, and 2023 – Phoenix, AZ) and the 2023 Mid-Atlantic Flute Convention in Washington, DC.
Why Donate and What Will Your Generosity Go Towards?
The Duquesne University Flute Choir will be applying to perform our first low flute-only program at the 2024 International Low Flutes Festival in Washington, DC.
This campaign will help cover membership fees for The International Low Flutes Society, registration for the festival, travel expenses, and room and board. To make this invaluable opportunity accessible to all of our members we are launching this crowdfunding campaign. Your generosity would help ensure that our members can attend and enjoy this experience.
Why It’s Important to Attend Professional Conventions, Conferences, and Festivals
Attendance at the International Low Flutes Festival is not only a performance opportunity, it is also an educational and professional experience. Throughout the festival, attendees have the opportunity to broaden their networks by meeting a diverse array of musicians and attend lectures, workshops, masterclasses, and performances.
