Solo and Ensemble Information
Solo and Ensemble is an opportunity for individual students in grades 6 – 12 to perform a selection of their choice for adjudication. Each student or group of students is evaluated by one judge and rated on a scale of 1 to 5 with 1 being the highest rating possible. They will also receive written commentary and suggestions. You may bring your own accompanist, play unaccompanied, or play with Smartmusic which will be available. Please note on your registration form if you will participate.
Master Class Competition
The Master Class Competition is open to flutists who are advanced High School students or undergraduates enrolled in any college/university. The Master Class Competition requires a preliminary recording round. The repertoire for this is a piece of your choice for Unaccompanied Flute or Flute and Piano. The piece should not exceed 10 minutes in length. The Alabama Flute Fest will choose up to two (2) flutists from the preliminary recording round to perform their solo in a master class with a guest artist at the Alabama Flute Fest on Saturday, January 12, 2019.
More Information on the Making Your Recording:
Multi-movement works are acceptable. Time between movements is included in the 10-minute total. Single movements or selected movements (recorded without pause) are also allowed. Recordings must not be edited in any way. The recording must be made with accompaniment. No cuts allowed in the flute part, however, cuts in the piano introduction/interludes are acceptable. Repeated sections marked by dot repeats or first/second endings are at the performer’s discretion.
