Sil­ver Winds, a flute en­sem­ble, will per­form at 4:30 p.m. in the Springville Mu­seum of Art on Sun­day, Nov. 20. The con­cert is free to the pub­lic and spon­sored by the Springville Arts Com­mis­sion.

Sil­ver Winds was formed in 1989 by a group of women who had the de­sire to stay ac­tive with their mu­si­cal tal­ents. They prac­tice to­gether at least ev­ery other week, which is a respite from their busy lives. The group is con­stantly evolv­ing, but the fo­cus is al­ways the same: to use and share their tal­ents.

Be­sides the C flute that most peo­ple are fa­mil­iar with, the pic­colo, the alto flute and the bass flute add to the group’s full sound and will be used at this con­cert.

Cur­rently the group con­sists of nine mem­bers: Sarah Allen, Adena Camp­bell, Penny Cur­tis, Marie Eg­bert, Lynelle Haas, Am­ber Jones, Donna Neibur, Co­lette Smith and Maudie Smith.
