San Diego Flute Guild


The San Diego Flute Guild was formed in 1987 (with just 6 members) to host the 1988 NFA Flute Convention.  Since then, our membership has grown to over 300 student, adult aficionado, and professional flutists.

The San Diego Flute Guild is a wonderful organization, and not just for flutists.  We are increasing our outreach to coordinate with other musical / instrumental clubs and associations, as well as flute clubs / associations in the U.S. and abroad.  It is our goal to promote the Flute and Music through year-round events and outreach programs.

Preliminary Round recordings are due TBD April 2022
