The New York Flute Club

Founded in 1920 by eminent flutist Georges Barrère, composer Lamar Stringfield, and a group of their associates, The New York Flute Club is the oldest such organization in the United States. Barrère's idea in starting the Club was to provide a common meeting ground for the professional, student, and amateur; a place where less experienced players could hear new and unusual music for the flute as well as the classic repertory played by fine artists; a place where all might find performance opportunities helpful to the development of their own talents.

The New York Flute Club sponsors:

  • a professional concert series
  • The New York Flute Fair
  • An ensemble program
  • Competition
  • A monthly newsletter
  • An education and enrichment program
  • Commissions of new music for the flute
  • A variety of publications and recordings
