National Flute Association to Hold Virtual Convention This Week
The National Flute Association announced it will hold its 49th annual convention virtually this week, from August 12-15. Thousands of professional, student and amateur flutists will gather virtually to experience a multifaceted flute convention.
The four-day event will include 135 flute-related sessions, including an opening orchestra, reading sessions, 55 performances, 30 panels, workshops, lectures, a late-night cabaret, networking activities and more. The convention’s theme, Variations on a Dream, highlights the many ways flutists carve out their own creative and career paths in today’s musical landscape.
“I am excited to share the thoughtful, diverse, and imaginative programs and presentations submitted by the NFA membership,” said Jennifer Grim, convention program chair. “Flutists will come together for a virtual celebration of the convention’s theme, ‘Variations on a Dream.’ This summer may still look a little different, but I look forward to seeing our worldwide community of flutists online as we look toward the future.”
The NFA’s first virtual Youth Flute Day features an expansive collection of programs intentionally designed to capture the attention and spark the imagination of young players. NFA’s virtual programming invites young flutists to share their talents, questions, and dreams with a roster of experts.
