The Tack Flute Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Each year the Committee organizes the Tack FluteFest in the Fall, which features masterclasses, flute choirs, a flute recital, and exhibits by local music stores.
Every spring, we sponsor annual flute competitions for local middle and high school flutists. In memory of George B. Tack, the Committee also annually loans professional-quality Haynes flutes to deserving young flutists who need a better flute and cannot afford one.
If you are interested in supporting local flutists by donating to our organization please contact us today. Online donations can be completed here. All proceeds to directly to event costs and flute maintenance. Every committee member donates 100% of their time to this organization.
Congratulations to our 2018 Tack Flute Competition Finalists!
