Join us for our 4th Marathon Flute Concert at the Mall of America Sears Court!
This epic 8-hour flute concert is a fundraising event to benefit UMFA's flute student scholarship program. See schedule of performers.
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.
Let us know you would like to volunteer to help with the event (any amount of time before, during, or after the concert is appreciated).
Tax-deductible monetary & instrument donations to the scholarship program are accepted year-round.
All performers, including non-flutists, are required to raise a minimum $25 donation to the fund (or a group contribution that averages out to at least $25 per performer). Piano accompanists hired by soloists are exempt from this requirement.
The minimum $25 donation per performer is paid via online registration. Additional donations can also be included in the registration.
Performers are encouraged to spread the word about the program and find donors to sponsor them in the performance. Larger individual or corporate donations are welcomed as well. There are opportunities for donor publicity and named scholarships.
This year, we will hold a raffle drawing after Give to the Max Day (Nov 14) and give some exciting prizes to top fundraisers. Each raffle ticket is $10, so a performer who donates $25 will automatically be entered into the drawing with two raffle tickets. A larger donation will increase your number of raffle tickets. Donations through November 14 will count towards the raffle drawing.
