The Oklahoma Flute Society was created to benefit anyone who loves the flute, and offers learning and performance opportunities for students, teachers, and professional players. Founded in 1994, OFS is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting flute study and performance in Oklahoma while also encouraging camaraderie among flutists and the highest standards of pedagogy and performance. The OFS sponsors numerous events each year, including the annual Flute Fair, Solo and Ensemble Festival, Members’ Recital and Honor Flute Choir events. Recent guest artists have included Molly Barth, Jeffrey Zook, Joshua Smith, Flutronix, Nicole Esposito, Greg Pattillo, Christina Jennings, Ann Fairbanks, Tadeu Coelho, Patricia George, Catherine McMichael, George Pope and Marianne Gedigian.
