47th Annual National Flute Association Convention
Transforming Artistry
August 1–4, 2019 • Salt Lake City, Utah


Join Us!

Come join us at the NFA’s annual gathering of our flute friends and family! This year we celebrate the artistry—in all its forms—that binds us together as performers, teachers, students, and collaborators. It all happens in the gorgeous setting of Salt Lake City, Utah, tucked between mountains in the fresh, clean air of a city famous for its civic embrace of the arts. We hope to see you there for the 47th Annual NFA Convention August 1–4.

This year’s theme, “Transforming Artistry,” reflects the many ways we channel our creative energy in bringing our inspired spirit to music and the flute. The convention’s program will reflect the skill and beauty found in high-level performance, honor the legacy of artistry passed to us from our teachers, and revitalize the connections among us all as collaborators, artists, and musicians.

This year’s convention will include 17 competitions and honors Lifetime Achievement Awards recipients Susan Milan and Emerson DeFord. Check our website throughout the year for updates on the events and people who will make this convention sing.

On August 1–4, 2019, thousands of flutists will gather to celebrate the beauty, inspiration, diversity, lifelong learning, and collaboration that we share. We invite you to join us!
