Flute Loops Roster

Tim Belliveau

North Windham, CT

I began playing the flute at age 10 in the Norwich Public School System. I played in Concert Band, Marching Band, Orchestra, and even as an occasional accompanist with the Chorus. Later I played in many groups, including Community Bands, Woodwind Quintets, Union Bands, Pit Orchestras, and for 20 years in the CT Army National Guard Band. 

Currently I keep my flute skills active with Flute Loops and CMR woodwind quintets.  Be-“leaf” it or not, I am in this picture… (hint: look behind the tree)

Dan Burns

Wallingford, CT

Unlike many others, I began playing the flute in my 30’s (30 years ago).  Although I did play the accordion for three years when I was 8.  Why the flute instead of another instrument?  It is smaller than a tuba.  I am a retired chemical engineer.  My wife and I live in Wallingford.  In addition to Flute Loops, I play with town bands in Branford and Wallingford.  My favorite flute to play is my alto flute, which has a rich, lower sound than the regular flute.

Lu Finegan

Gales Ferry, CT

I live with my husband Steve (Flute Loops groupie). I’m a pharmacist by trade, and work in corporate pharmacy operations.  My love for music started when I was a child - leading me to learn the piano. I’ve always loved the flute so finally started learning a few years ago. I’ve very excited to be a part of Flute Loops and to play music with such a great group of people!

Chuck Gendrich

Middletown, CT

I’ve played cello and bass for many years, so when my daughter handed me her new flute and said, “Play this, Dad!” I was skeptical.  But once I heard the low C and felt how light the instrument is, I was sold!  I’m so grateful for the opportunity to play with Flute Loops, where I am constantly inspired to play better, and where rehearsals are all about playing everything musically.  And of course, thanks to Katie, for getting me hooked on flute!!

Lisa LaRochelle

Plainfield, CT

I live with a wonderful guy named Jeff and two dogs named Clyde and Harmony. I have two sons, Brayton and Brett,  and a brand new daughter-in-law named Myca,  who came here a  few months ago from the Philippines. I’ve been blessed in this life with good health, good friends and the opportunity to share my gifts as a piano and yoga teacher. I started playing the flute in 2016 and am psyched to be part of this group.

Clare McIntyre

Colchester, CT

I have been playing flute for nine years in the Colchester Public Schools system, and I am currently in the Bacon Academy 6:45 Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Band, and Jazz Band. I am also a flutist in the Greater Hartford Youth Wind Ensemble, and have performed in a few festival bands. I try to spend all of the time I can with my flute and piccolo, whose respective names are Brody and Borislav. Looking ahead, I plan to study Music Education in college. I love playing with the Flute Loops, and am super excited for our performances this year!
