Our mission is to provide times and places for flutists to meet, exchange ideas, gain performance experience, play in ensembles, and generally promote and enhance flute playing in the greater Portland area. GPFS is dedicated to the furthering of music education, including the increase of accessibility of knowledge through scholarship and study grant programs, instrument loan programs, and volunteer support in our schools.
