The Association

The International Flute Convention is organized by the Association "La Traversiere".

The Association "La Traversiere " was founded on January 22nd, 1983, by ambitious flutists from Lyon. Thanks to the will of a small group of volunteers, the association has grown up, providing today a privileged means of expression and communication for flutists.
The Association’s objectives are the following:

- Multiply contacts around the world with all the associations of flutists to develop a fruitful exchange of ideas and actions, particularly in the context of the organization of European events

- Establish a major press service (personalities of the flute and the music industry in general, book publishers, partitions, CD, DVD...)

- The publication of the "Traversières magazine et Piccolo Mag", privileged media among flutists, offering each of its editions a selection of CDs in special offers.

- The creation and regular update of a website to the attention of the entire Francophony passionate by the world of the flute in all of its aspects: directory, concerts, competitions, teaching, etc...

But it is above all the dynamism of all the members that we need! This association is actually yours !
