Masks for flute performing

Click on image to enlarge, or visit link below.
 Dear Flute-lovers,

As well as vaccines and boosters, some flutists are now being asked to perform while wearing face masks especially in seniors settings.

Although I haven't tried them myself, the top product at the moment is the flute mask made by the Broadway Relief Project. They are about $25 U.S. and come in black and beige, with a wire across the top edge to individualize the fit. You do have to leave your flute in place, rather than lowering it, while you're performing an entire piece, but apparently these are the best quality available at the moment.

Just thought I'd share the link here, so folks can find them:

Feel free to comment below if you've found other good quality performing masks for the coming challenges of ongoing Covid.  So much good live music is needed now. Happy masked music making! :>)
