From the British Isles

What a wonderful opportunity for an entertaining and educational program. Use flags from the British Isles for decorations and/or program covers. Invite a guest speaker, and incorporate stories about the region. Have a guest "royal family". These pieces also combine well with our Christinas program, "A Dickens of a Christinas". You can even tell young flutists about the many famous flutists from the British Isles!
