CAFE Jr Members

In the Fall of 2011, the Cortland Area Junior Flute Ensemble (CAFE Jr.) was created as an extension of the Cortland Area Flute Ensemble (CAFE). CAFE Jr. is a youth organization for students up to grade 8 in school, who are able to play a NYSSMA III (or equivalent) piece.

CAFE Jr. aims to:

  • Be a local community music organization that focuses on flute performance, skills, and music
  • Compliment the music lessons being provided in school
  • Be a fun and creative after-school alternative
  • Promote new friendships and healthy interactions
CAFE Jr. holds weekly rehearsals after school on Wednesdays. SUNY Cortland's Fine Arts Department is a partner of CAFE, as they provide us access to their music library of flute ensemble repertoire. The Fine Arts Department also allows us to utilize the college’s alto flute for any rehearsals and performances. The CAFE ensembles are looking to raise funds to purchase music and a bass flute to enhance the dynamics of the ensemble.

For more information about CAFE or CAFE Jr., or to make a donation, please contact Maria R. Mucaria, Director, at
