Event Details

The annual NFA Convention hosts the biggest flute concert of the year and the only event of its kind in the world: the Gala Concerto Concert.

This exciting gala evening presents a rare opportunity to experience an entire concert of flute concertos, performed by virtuoso flutists from around the globe, with a full orchestra. Each year, the Gala Concerto Concert offers an eclectic mix of repertoire featuring flute and piccolo in a variety of periods and styles. Past programs have included everything from classical favorites to compelling new music. For the thousands of flutists who attend the annual convention, the Gala Concerto Concert is the highlight of the week and eagerly anticipated all year.

This year’s Gala Concerto Concert features a constellation of fiercely bright musical talents, backed by the Chicago Philharmonic at Symphony Center.

Led by Maestro Leonard Slatkin, the concert features the world premieres of Jennifer Higdon’s The Light the We Can Hear and of Piccolo Play for Piccolo and String Orchestra by Thea Musgrave. Plus Malambo by Miguel del Aguila, Concerto for Flute and Orchestra by Carl Reinecke, and The World of Montuagretta by Christian Lindberg.
