See You There!

ResonaThis July we’ve been hard at work here at the factory to bring YOU, our valued clients and lovers of all things Resona and Burkart, the best instruments we possibly can! We’re less than 2 weeks away from the National Flute Convention in San Diego and we are more excited than ever.


Have you been dying to see Burkart and Resona products in IMG_5515action? There’s no better place than the convention to do so – our players are all over the program! While you can find a full program here: National Flute Convention Schedule, we thought we’d take a second to let you know exactly when and where our talented players are going to be.


We wish you safe travels from all over the country (and world!) and we are looking forward to seeing you in soon! Remember to stop by the Burkart and Resona Booth (Booth #202) to say hi!
