Call For Proposals

Proposals for the 48th Convention in Dallas, Texas, will be open soon!

48th Annual National Flute Association Convention

Dallas, Texas

August 6–9, 2020

The National Flute Association is coming to the Lone Star State! Much as Texans take pride in individualism and independence of spirit, we celebrate the many diverse ways that flutists forge distinct paths in our community.

The NFA community of flutists is a mosaic, to which each of us contributes a brilliance and luster. Whether we play the piccolo or bass flute, perform new music or jazz, teach or tour, each of us has a home and a role at the NFA convention. The NFA provides a space where students, amateurs, and professionals of experience and knowledge are welcome and valued.

Dallas’s slogan, “Big Things Happen Here,” will certainly resonate August 6–9, 2020, as thousands of flutists convene in our big city. To foster and celebrate the diverse contributions of our members, we invite your proposals for the 48th NFA Convention in Dallas, Texas.

While all proposals will be gratefully and carefully considered, we hope to especially encourage proposals that address and honor works written by people of color, women, and the LGBTQ community. We also encourage multidisciplinary and mixed-media proposals.

Proposed events may be in the form of panels, lectures, workshops, or performances. Performance proposals may be for a single piece or a larger program. 

We also would like to learn about how you forge creative and career paths in today’s musical landscape. Are you an arts advocate in your community? Are you interested in social justice work through music? How have you made an impact in your institution, neighborhood, city, or state? Proposals that address these important issues are welcomed and encouraged. 

Proposals must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. CDT on Tuesday, October 1, 2019. Flute choir proposals must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. CST on Tuesday, November 12, 2019.

Gala Concerto proposals for the 2021 convention must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. CST on Wednesday, January 15, 2020.

The NFA looks forward to hearing from you!
