2024 World Flute Society Convention
The 2024 World Flute Society convention will be held on the beautiful campus of the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire! The summers are picturesque in Eau Claire, a small city whose residents are enthusiastic in their support of the cultural arts. The city of Eau Claire, and particularly its university, encourages all forms of creativity and self-expression, an approach that is displayed both readily and
proudly. The beauty of nature is resplendent in Eau Claire, especially on the university campus where there are bike paths, scenic walking trails, and a river that runs directly by the Haas Fine Arts Center where all convention activities are held.
Come join us for an amazing musical and cultural journey of inspiration and richly diverse music!
