The Henry B. González Convention Center is just steps away from the historic San Antonio Riverwalk, with restaurants, shops and entertainment for everyone.

The convention theme, 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. This year's performances are inclusive of wide-reaching repertoire, featuring the broad cultural palate of our flute.

The Arts: Flute as Collaborative Partner
Our flute’s multifaceted nature lends itself to collaboration with a wide variety of art forms. Performances will explore this intersection, incorporating flute with with a multitude of art mediums.
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.
