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.

You can participate in a variety of ways:
Option 1: Record yourself playing your piece. When you are ready to upload your video, send an e-mail to email@example.com and we will send you a link to the upload location. Please submit all videos by Thursday, June 18, 2020, at noon. We will broadcast your performances during our Facebook Live Event on Saturday, June 20.
Option 2: Record yourself playing your piece. Upload your video to your Instagram account and use the hashtag #EFAfluteslam. We will be watching for this hashtag and will include your video in our Livestream on June 20.
Option 3: If you would like to play live from your home or studio, we will meet on Zoom and broadcast from there onto our Facebook Live feed. Please sign up by Thursday, June 18, 2020, at noon so that we can arrange the performance schedule and send you the link to the Zoom meeting.
Option 4: If you would like to simply enjoy being part of our audience, you can view the performances on our Facebook Page.
We can’t wait to hear what you are working on!
Virtual Flute Choir
Let’s create a Virtual Play-in Flute Choir!
We have 2 very talented EFA members who have volunteered to help us. Ron Baptiste is providing some of his sheet music arrangements for us to play and Dave Organ will put all of our parts together in a video. Now we need all of you to help us make the music!
If you would like to participate, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
Our first song is “Be Our Guest” – a Disney classic. To take part in our first virtual flute choir, please sign up by Monday, June 1, 2020 and please upload your recording no later than Wednesday, June 3, 2020.
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.)
