Original Poetry And Music Just For You

The Magique Flute offers a unique opportunity for you to have an original musical poem created for and performed at your special event in Saratoga Springs, NY, the Capital District and Lower Adirondacks, including Glens Falls, NY and the Lake George Region.

Susan Jefts, a well-known poet in the Capital District and Adirondack regions and Margaret LaFrance, flutist, composer and keyboardist combine their artistry to create musical poetry. Susan and Margaret have performed numerous times together in the Saratoga region, including the Saratoga Arts Festival, and most recently at a fundraising concert for Wiawaka Women’s Retreat on Lake George.

We hope you enjoy the sample selections below, which comprise only a few of the many musical poems we have created and performed together.
