Delta College Flute Choir
The Delta College Flute Choir was launched in 1974 under the direction of Mary Anderson of Essexville, who led the group until her retirement in 2013. Mrs. Anderson has since passed the baton to Anne Livingston of Saginaw, who now directs the group’s efforts as members travel across the Great Lakes Bay Region (Bay, Midland and Saginaw Counties) to entertain a wide variety of gatherings. Anne Livingston is a graduate of the University of Michigan-Flint and works as a music teacher for the Bay City Public Schools.
The Delta College Flute Choir is made up of high school to senior citizen aged musicians, presenting the complete range of flute instrumentation -- piccolo, E flat, C, alto and bass flute(s). The group – made up of about 12-14 individuals – is a performance-centered ensemble and can be seen around the community at various performance venues, including the World Friendship Shell in Bay City, churches, community events, service organizations, social engagements, youth programs and benefits. The Flute Choir has also appeared as guests of the Bay Concert Band, Midland Concert Band, Saginaw Bay Symphony Orchestra, American Guild of Organists and the Bay Arts Council.
The Delta College Flute Choir is one of the five oldest flute choirs in the United States and the oldest performing flute choir in Michigan. The group has delighted audiences everywhere with selections by Bach, Mancini, Sousa, Rodgers and Hammerstein and other composers. The Choir is available for special activities and performances.
