Judy Simmermon,

The beautiful flute playing of Judy Simmermon began in high school and she moved on to play in the U.S. Marine Band in Quantico.  She has performed in the Atlantic Pops Community Band in Egg Harbor Township for five years as well as the Tri-State Band in Gloucester County.  Judy is a dedicated flutist and also plays for weddings and special events.

About Us

Geri and Judy met online in a flutist forum and presently  perform together in the Atlantic Pops Community Band.  They began "Flutes for Peace" in an attempt to promote peace and understanding through music.  They believe that Art Save Lives in more ways than one.  But Geri Rizzo and Judy Simmermon have something more important in common than playing the flute...  They were both single Moms who put their musical dreams on hold for a good reason - to work and support their children and raise them well.  Mission accomplished, they are now enjoying playing music and helping others in doing so.  The ensemble performs classical to pop, inspirational, sacred, and holiday music!

Our Mission
We are on a ministry through music not only to  bring joy and healing to all who listen, but also to aid Peace Organizations in their quest. Our goal is simple:  To spread peace, healing and joy to shut-ins, perform for benefits, and promote an atmosphere of love and well being through our musical gifts. We are now four and growing!
