Coming Up: NFA 2024 Convention!

It’s almost my favorite time of the year: the National Flute Association 2024 Convention! At the end of July, I will be traveling to San Antonio, TX to be surrounded by all things flute! My first time attending the NFA convention was in 2023, and it was one of the most inspiring events I have ever been to. Flute players from all over the world come together for sessions, masterclasses, performances, and exhibits. It is a time where online friends meet in person for the first time, and people get to meet flutists they have always looked up to.

While I’m still working on finalizing which sessions I will attend, here are a few I’m SUPER excited about:

  • Involve yoga for musicians
  • Irish flute (one of my favorite sessions from last year!),
  • Orchestral auditions and masterclass, extended techniques, and
  • And a ton of concerts by various flute ensembles and soloists throughout the convention.

I’m also excited to try out some flutes by the wonderful exhibitors and see what I would like to bring into our flute shop. Stay tuned!

Are you attending the NFA Convention this year? Let me know and I’d love to meet you!
