UMFA provides a variety of programming and resources for its members, including Flute Fest (with renowned guest artists and clinicians), Flute Choir Showcase, Honors Flute Choir, Parlor Concerts, master classes, a music lending library, a regular newsletter, and low flute rentals. Your donation will help UMFA to continue its mission of providing these resources for flutists.
