Coffeehouse Concerts

A special concert series taking place Friday and Saturday during the 2022 NFA Convention
Coffeehouse Concerts round logo

Our 50th anniversary convention celebration will look backward, highlighting the rich history of the NFA, and forward, exploring new sounds, new voices, and the path that lies ahead of us. One of the ways we'll look forward is with an exciting new series: Coffeehouse Concerts.

The Coffeehouse Concert series presents electroacoustic music, cutting edge technology, and multimedia performances by an exciting array of flutists, all in a comfortable, intimate setting. Bring your coffee, have a seat on a couch, and discover something new.
