Due to COVID-19, all of our in-person events are currently paused. We have lots of plans in the works for when social distancing is no longer needed, including Play-ins, Flute Slam Open-Mics, a concert, and much more! In the meantime, we are bringing some events on-line.
We have a few more workshop ideas in the works and we are always wanting your feedback telling us what you would like to learn about. If you have ideas and suggestions or if you have expertise that you would like to share as a presenter, please send us an email.

Virtual Flute Choir
Virtual Flute Choir – Halloween Edition
It’s time for another Virtual Flute Choir and we’re making it spooky!
Our next piece is “This Is Halloween” from the movie “The Nightmare Before Christmas”.
If you would like to participate, please send an email to email@example.com to sign up. We will send you a part to play, a recording to play along to (so that we all keep the same tempo!), and a link to an upload location. When you’ve mastered your part, record a video of yourself playing and upload it. We will put all of the parts together into a full virtual flute choir video to share at the EFA’s Flute Slam on Saturday, October 17, 2020.
To take part in this virtual flute choir, please sign up and upload your recording no later than Wednesday, October 7, 2020.
Costumes are optional but keenly encouraged. There will be a prize for the Best Costume!
This is a free activity open to all EFA Members. If you have not yet renewed your membership for 2020-2021, you can do so here. (Please remember to fill out the membership form before you pay.)
