The nationally recognized Eastern Michigan University Emerald Flutes is an integral part of the flute studio at Eastern Michigan University. Open to all flute majors and minors, the flute ensemble performs in a variety of venues and performs music from the past to the present. The group was selected to perform at the National Flute Association Conventions in 2000 (Columbus) and 2014 (Chicago) where it premiered compositions by internationally acclaimed composer, Christopher Caliendo.

The members of the EMU Emerald Flutes have the opportunity to play in small ensembles such as duets, trios, quartets, and quintets in addition to flute choir. To further ensemble playing skills, these ensembles rehearse on their own as a group and are coached by the director. The small ensembles rehearse at mutually agreed upon times. The flute choir has access to alto and bass flutes that are an important part of the flute choir.
