The High Winds Flute Choir consists of retired educators and serious amateurs hailing from coastal and inland towns from Yarmouth to Damariscotta. The present group, playing piccolo, concert, alto, and bass flutes, came together for the joy of sharing and the opportunity to experience firsthand the exciting emerging repertoire of pieces being written or adapted for flute choir, from Baroque to contemporary. The High Winds have performed at libraries, retirement communities, and for civic organizations, and love sharing the history of their music and their instruments.
Nan White earned her B.A. in Music from Smith College with an emphasis on flute and conducting. She spent one semester as a special student with Rene LeRoy at the Paris Conservatory. She also earned two M.Ed. degrees and had a career in Special Education returning to music full time after retirement. She has conducted many vocal choirs and High Winds is her first return to instrumental conducting.
