Flauta Mundi: Global Voices of the Flute

The 2024 Convention, Flauta Mundi: Global Voices of the Flute, celebrates the global nature of the flute. Convention performances will be focused on three distinct themes:

Cultural Diversity: The Far Corners of the Flute

Represented historically across geographies, races, traditions, nationalities and styles, the flute is an instrument of rich diversity. By inviting proposals inclusive of wide-reaching repertoire, we strive to feature the broad cultural palate of our flute.

The Arts: Flute as a Collaborative Partner

Our flute’s multifaceted nature lends itself to collaboration with a wide variety of art forms. We seek proposals which explore this intersection, incorporating flute with every possible art medium. Performances and installations which employ partnership with other artists or feature multidisciplinary artist-flutists are encouraged.

Nature: Our Musical Connection

Throughout history, the flute has been a chosen instrument to draw us closer to nature. Emulating birdsong, the sounds of water and wind, and conjuring images of idyllic landscapes, the flute reconnects us with the natural world. We request proposals which highlight repertoire rooted in themes of nature.
