Excerpted from music notes by Albert H. Cohen

Music on the unusual side is featured this week. Closest to home is a series of free concerts by The Festive Flutes, a semi-professional flute choir directed by Marjorie Koharski, of Neptune. The group is in its twelfth year of concertizing and its ninth year of presenting annual recitals for young audiences.

This year's program is called "A Musical Journey". It will be a sampler of music from around the world: an Irish Londonderry Air; a Japanese Sakura; a French Alouette; the Mexican Hat Dance and works by Bach, Grieg and Tchaikovsky. The opening concert takes place Saturday.

The group - all local residents - consists of Jamie Arasz Prioli and Cyndie VanBavel of Ocean Township; Veronica Benjamin, Neptune; Nancy Bierbrauer and Janet Rollar, Brick; Ellie Cheung, Holmdel and Michele Horner, Howell.

All concerts are free. The schedule:
