Small Ensembles

As a woodwind specialist, Dr. Kenneth Ruff organized the University Flute Choir and University Saxophone Choir in 2010. These ensembles highlight musical selections that are specific to their instrumentation. Rehearsals are twice a week for each ensemble. In 2010, both the Flute Choir and the Saxophone Choir presented their inaugural concerts at the Little Theatre at neighboring Bennett College for Women. The event featured pieces that were jazz, spiritual and traditional concert music. Both ensembles are under the baton of Dr. Ruff. New in the spring of 2011, the department added the University Clarinet Choir.
