Elmer, the 3-Legged Dog by Melvin Lauf, Jr.


Scored for Solo Alto Flute, 3 Piccolos, 4 C Flutes, 2 Alto Flutes, Bass Flute and Contrabass Flute.

Duration: 7 minutes

Elmer, the Three-Legged Dog starts with the joyous birth of a litter of pups. We slowly find out that one of the pups is different or should we say one less limb. Poor Elmer struggles to find a place in this new world that he has found himself in. Learning to walk and run was a little problem. But Elmer comes out with flying colors.

Commissioned by the Woodbridge Flute Choir for soloist Chris Potter.
