Achievement Awards

Every year since 1991 the National Flute Association has honored the best and the brightest of its colleagues with the Lifetime Achievement Award. The debut award went to Jean-Pierre Rampal; since that time, luminaries from Julius Baker to Sir James Galway have joined the ranks, along with recipients of the NFA's intermittent National Flute Association Distinguished Service Award. Listed here are past Lifetime Achievement Award and National Flute Association Distinguished Service Award winners, with links to more information about them.
