CAFE Flutes – Central Arizona Flute Ensemble


Central Arizona Flute Ensemble (CAFE) enriches, enlightens, and inspires central Arizona residents by presenting interactive concerts and educational programs that showcase the diverse instruments in the flute family. The 7-member flute choir plays instruments ranging from the rare 10-foot long contrabass flute all the way up to the piccolo. One audience member commented, ”I came here thinking, ‘I’ll listen to a few flutes.’ Little did I know how interesting and impressive this performance would be!”
