Toronto Latin American Flute Festival (TLAFF)

Welcome to the 2017 Toronto Latin American Flute Festival brought to you by the Canadian Flute Association 

We are thrilled to showcase the rich musical traditions of this region and to bring you the wealth of experience, expertise and artistic integrity these flutists represent.

Flutists gather in associations and collectives all over the world to celebrate their instrument and to foster new repertoire. There is so much music out there that is worth discovering and celebrating and we want to honour this immense variety with an annual festival. There is no better stage for this multicultural flute extravaganza than the superbly diverse city of Toronto.

These events will provide opportunities to listen, learn and be inspired to improvise. They will also support the career paths of young local artists through lessons, performance opportunities and networking. But above all, we hope that TLAFF will be a celebration and discovery of Latin American flute music and flutists from across the globe.”
