Request for Proposals

The Upper Midwest Flute Association is accepting member proposals to present in each year’s Flute Fest. Flute Fest is an opportunity for flutists of all ages and ability levels to learn more about playing the flute. We welcome performers and presenters of all backgrounds and will give preference to proposals that are interactive, appeal to a broad audience, and welcome and highlight the contributions of BIPOC, LGBTQ+, women, and other marginalized populations in our flute community. 

A current UMFA membership is required in order to submit a proposal.

Proposals will be accepted for the in-person Flute Fest in Minneapolis on April 2, 2022.
