At our last meeting on March 27th, our two Arthur’s Memory Cafe groups joined together to enjoy the talents of two gracious women who came to share their love for the Native American flutes. The flutes were gorgeous and surprising light to hold. The music was beautiful and calming. Deborah Magnuson and Cynthia Unowsky are part of a group called 10,000 Lakes Flute Circle which performs for a variety of groups around town as their way to give back.
Their performance was enchanting and kept us all engaged as their flutes bantered back and forth. They gave us some insights into the history of flutes, the various woods that are used to craft the instruments, how the tones can be changed and mastered and how the instruments have been used to communicate as well as used for pleasure and relaxation.
It was a very fun time.
Maybe you will want to join us at our next meeting on April 1oth from 1-3 pm at J. Arthur’s Coffee shop in Roseville, Mn.
