The Festive Flutes, a semi-professional flute choir, will present a free young person's program at 2 p.m. Saturday at the Howell Library. It is repeated at 7 p.m. Feb. 20 in the Wall Library and at 2 p.m. March 15 in the Marlboro Library.

The program is titled "Opera-tune-ity" and will feature familiar classical tunes from the world of opera and operetta. There will be a story about Babar the elephant, music from Gilbert and Sullivan, a dance from Humperdinck's "Hansel and Gretel" and music from Bizet's "Carmen." All these tunes should be familiar and thus enjoyed by parent and child alike.

Festive Flutes has a membership of adults and advanced high school students. It was founded and is directed by Marjorie Koharski, Neptune. Its other members are Caitlin Bogdan, Ron Campo, Lorraine Jansen and Annette Lewis, all from Neptune; Carolyn Mauer, Middletown; Karen Milos, Dover Township and Alex Sowuleski, Little Silver.
