MESSAGE FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

BUILDING ARTISTIC BRIDGES BETWEEN CANADA AND LATIN AMERICAN COUNTRIES

“TLAFF 2016 was a resounding success thanks to your support and sponsorship! This year we are growing and presenting more artists and events and a new International Flute Competition. Our celebrated Guest Artists will capture your hearts with live performances and inspiring educational events. There is no better place for this multicultural flute extravaganza than the diverse city of Toronto!

TLAFF 2017 will provide opportunities to listen, learn and be inspired. Our passionate team supports the career paths of flutists from all over the world by building artistic bridges between Canada and over ten Latin American countries. But above all, we hope that you join us in the celebration and discovery of Latin American music and flutists from across the globe.”
