Southeast Michigan Flute Association

Mission Statement

“To promote the advancement and appreciation of the flute and flute playing throughout Southeast Michigan.”


The Southeast Michigan Flute Association (SEMFA) is a non-profit flute organization in Southeast Michigan. Established in 2002, we serve as a platform for students, amateurs, professionals, teachers, and lovers of the flute to connect. From the Detroit Symphony Orchestra flute section, the major university and college professors, to the number of regional orchestral flutists and the talented students of all ages: we arrange, coordinate and involve our members in a number of concerts, recitals, annual festival and masterclasses.
