NFA Online Events

Taking place on Sundays at 2:00 PM Central US Time, these interactive Zoom events were crafted with the flute community in mind, designed to inspire and connect. All events are open to the public and free of charge, but advance registration is required. (You can find registration links in the event descriptions.) You're welcome to attend one, some, or all of the events—whatever sparks your interest.

NFA members have put together a diverse and dynamic roster of experiences, drawing on the expertise, talent, and passion of an exciting cross-section of flutists. We hope you'll join the conversation!
