About the Marathon Flute Concert

In spring 2015, the UMFA board created a new scholarship program to support local flute students in their musical studies.  We invited all flutists to help us kick off the fundraising effort by participating in an 8-hour long Marathon Flute Concert at the Mall of America. We successfully raised more than $2,500 to begin our scholarship program and began a new tradition.

Please consider participating in this year's event as a performer, volunteer, or donor to help remove barriers to high-quality music education for local students.  Donations to the scholarship program are accepted year-round.

Thank you so much to everyone who has helped support this program.  Your time, energy, and generosity have provided life-changing opportunities for a growing number of young people in our area.

Help us to reach our 2023 goal of raising 
$2,000 for the scholarship fund!

Monetary Donations:
If you would like to donate to the scholarship program, please visit our Support page and designate the "scholarship fund" option in your check or online payment.  A

Instrument donations (flutes and non-flutes) are accepted throughout the year through UMFA’s partner organizations, the MusicLink Foundation and Hopewell Music Cooperative North.
