    Happy Tundra Tuesday from Central Indiana! This week I wanted to highlight a member of the flute family that does not usually get a lot of attention: the flute d’amore. Although practical in a jazz setting, the beautiful tone of this flute makes it worth a closer look in the concert setting as well.
