History of the Ensemble

The New England Flute Orchestra of Indian Hill Music (formerly the Nashua Flute Choir) is a professional level ensemble made of up of music educators, church musicians, and flutists with formal training and a life-long commitment to music. Dr. Eileen Yarrison, a flute instructor at Gordon College and Indian Hill Music has directed the group since 1997. Founded as a four-person ensemble in 1983, this voluntary, non-profit organization was devoted to the cultural and musical enrichment of Nashua, and surrounding communities in New Hampshire and Massachusetts for more than thirty years. The ensemble has premiered five commissioned works, has recorded three CDs, and was featured on television’s New Hampshire Chronicle. They have performed at several National Flute Association Conventions and in Boston’s Symphony Hall. In 2014 The Nashua Flute Choir changed its name to the New England Flute Orchestra, reflecting the growth of the ensemble, the geographic range of its performing venues, and plans for the future.
