flute choir expandable flute choir (minimum piccolo, 3 flutes) score and parts

A modern American composer, Ricky Lombardo composed this in three movements.  Each movement portrays a style of music using a Latino theme and typical syncopated rhythms in a contemporary sound. Total performance duration 8:43. 

Con Vida (With Life) is energetic and happy.  This movement uses punctuating rhythms while still being very melodic with lyrical passages.  

The second movement, Mi Amor (My Love), is written in an Habanera dance style with extremely lyrical melodies.  This should be played in a sensual way that emits the emotional feelings associated with unconditional love.

The third movement, Ole (Bravo, Well done!), begins with a typical Latino unison theme followed by the same melody as a duet setting the stage for anticipating the thrilling excitement of what to expect next.  

Expandable Flute Choir begins with a minimum of the first four parts and adds more C flutes or lower flutes as they are available. Full scoring is piccolo, 3 C flutes, alto flute, bass flute, and contrabass flute.
