Our Musical Director

Sue Nicholls Head ShotFlutes and Co are pleased to welcome Sue Nicholls as their new conductor from September 2015.  Sue is a classically trained flautist who has a background in the personal development of children and young people.  She has led 2 flute choirs in the past: one in Hereford and one in Northumberland.

Sue was a former member of Flutes and Co but took a break to look after her 3 children and to pursue her love of folk music. She now calls and plays for Rascal Fayre Ceilidh Band, organising community family ceilidhs and playing for private functions.

Recently Sue joined the Westmorland Orchestra, playing flute and piccolo and has welcomed the chance to play classical music again.

Sue says, “I’m really looking forward to conducting Flutes & Co. They have a strong, committed membership of children and adults of all ages and have a legacy of some wonderful music and fantastic instruments. I feel very privileged to take them on to their next stage of development.”
