About the Pikes Peak Flute Choir

The Pikes Peak Flute Chior, 2015

Established in 1984, the Pikes Peak Flute Choir is now really more of a flute orchestra! From tiny piccolo to the very large subcontrabass flute, our musicians create a rich depth of sound. Our 35-plus members range from ages 16 to 80 with professions as varied as our flutes: students, teachers, professional musicians, scientists, veterinarians, writers and graphic designers just to name a few!


Our organization consists of 2 choirs. The large choir is for flute players of any playing ability who wish to join. We also have a Low Voice chior consisting of alto flute down through sub-contrabass flute. Any member can play in the Low Voice chior as long as there is an instrument available (the choir owns some low flutes for all members to play).


We recently celebrated our 30th anniversary with a "30 Years and Counting" Gala event at Stargazers on May 4, 2014. In the summer of 2015, Treese Kjeldsen took over the helm of Director in the summer of 2015 when Karen Morsch was promoted to Director Emeritus. After our Spring 2017 concert, Treese Kjeldsen retired to the mountians and the Assistant Conductor, Akio Lis, was promoted to Director.


Our Resident Composer, Akio Lis, recently won the Madison Flute Club contest for a contrabass flute composition.


The Pikes Peak Flute Choir received its non-profit status in 1988 and is also a member of the National Flute Association.






If you have never heard of flute choirs before, be sure to check out the amazing US Represented article, "Fute Choir? Is that Even a Thing?" It was written by PPFC's very own, DeLyn! It digs into not only the different types of flutes, but also the music written for flute choirs.
