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 $2500 to begin our scholarship program and began a new tradition.

We are proud to announce our fifth marathon concert on Saturday, October 26, 2019 to continue funding UMFA's scholarship program.  Please consider joining us 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 2019 goal of raising $5000 for the scholarship fund!
