Flutissimo is pleased to announce the fourth annual Flutissimo Solo Artist Competition. This competition is open to all participants of Flutissimo.
One of Flutissimo’s goals is to help students develop an understanding of the solo flute repertoire. The Solo Artist Competition gives select participants an opportunity to perform a standard piece from the flute repertoire in a formal concert setting. The selected competition finalists gain valuable performance experience, and all Flutissimo participants also benefit by gaining exposure and knowledge of these standard works.
How to Enter
For those applicants entering the competition, the recorded audition must include the mandatory preliminary work, the Corrente and Sarabande movements from Partita by J.S. Bach. If entering the competition, applicants will not need to provide another recorded audition for admittance.
Simply indicate that you would like to enter the competition in the “Competition” section of the application.
ALL SOLO COMPETITION AUDITIONEES MUST APPLY TO FLUTISSIMO AND UPLOAD THEIR RECORDED AUDITION BY APRIL 30, 2018.
A committee will judge the preliminary auditions and five (5) finalists will be chosen to compete and perform a work from the repertoire list below (with piano accompaniment) no longer than 10 minutes at an evening gala recital during Flutissimo. The finalists will perform the same work indicated on the application - no substitutions. Flutissimo will provide a pianist for the finalists, and each finalist will have a 45 minute piano rehearsal (if applicable) prior to performing in the final round. Flutissimo’s faculty artists will judge the live final round.
