The theme of the TFF’s 2021 Gala Concert is dedicated to all-things Nordic. The Nordic Delights of the Flute Gala Concert is an event that you do not want to miss! Please join us at the Nordic-inspired program, which is scheduled for Sunday, April 25, 2021.


How does our future look? Our future looks BRIGHT!

The Covid-19 crisis required a total transformation of the music world at every level. In the face of tremendous hardship, musicians were forced to adapt, adjust and endure, demonstrating resilience and bringing to life Nietzsche’s powerful words that life without music would be a mistake. Seeing this challenge as an opportunity has given us the drive to set forth on a new journey as we bring to you a unique forum for learning and inspiration with our Nordic-inspired 2021 festival!

Times are indeed changing, especially for young artists dreaming of a musical future. We believe that it is our duty to continue to promote music education and support talent not only in the community but worldwide. The 2021 festival will present vast opportunities for career development through five distinct competitions and a Rising Stars Program for children.

The Tampere Flute Fest will do its best to thrust forward with the challenges, finding inspiration to imagine a new and bright future. Make sure to stay connected with us for news and updates.

We look forward to meeting you at our global event in April and seeing how TFF inspires you to new levels in your flute playing!

Beatriz Macias, TFF Artistic Director
