Flutenado is a flutistic meteorological musical wonder composed by Paige Dashner Long, inspired by Florida storms and beautiful beaches. One has heard of “sharknado” and is familiar with tornado, so Flutenado is a flutey combination of both. At the beginning you will hear sounds of the ocean, complete with bird calls.. A calm, lazy day at the beach soon changes as storm clouds roll in, with gusts of wind subsiding into moments of calm. Then, the storm breaks loose into a flurry of rain, wind and waves. With relief, the storm ends quickly, just as the daily Florida summer thunderstorms pop up and then pass through quickly.
Flutenado has flexible instrumentation for performance by either traditional flute choir (piccolo, flutes 1-3, alto flute, bass flute, and optional contrabass flute) or low flutes ensemble (1 concert flute in place of piccolo, alto flutes 1-4, bass flute, and optional contrabass flute).
