    This epic, 8-hour flute concert is a fundraising event to benefit UMFA's flute student scholarship program.  

    Flutists of all ages and levels, from beginner students to professionals, are invited to perform for an enthusiastic audience and support their local flute community!  We welcome all types of flute and all styles of music.

    Tax-deductible monetary & instrument donations to the scholarship program are accepted year-round.
