Welcome to the home page of the Tempest Flute Ensemble, Western Canada’s premiere flute ensemble, dedicated to the promotion and performance of the music of our time. In recent history, the “flute choir” has been a much-maligned ensemble, despite a rich history that dates back to the Renaissance. The Tempest Flute Ensemble is dedicated to revitalizing the genre with the commissioning of new works by Canadian and international composers and performances full of virtuosity and verve!
