Sølvvinden Flute Ensemble

The Sølvvinden Flute Ensemble was founded in 1994 by the ensemble’s first director, Rae Terpenning.  The ensemble performs frequently at PLU and venues such as Town Hall in Seattle and the Washington State Capitol Rotunda.  The ensemble was selected to perform at the 2010 Washington Music Educators Association conference in Yakima and was among a small group of flute choirs selected to perform in August 2010 at the National Flute Association Convention in Anaheim, CA.  The flute choir is proud to use a Philip Hammig piccolo, Trevor James alto flutes, and a Kingma bass flute.  The purchase of these instruments was made possible in part through generous donations from supporters of the flute choir.  The Norwegian term Sølvvinden can be translated as The Silver Wind.
