The Collegiate Flute Choir Competition will select college flutists to perform in the Collegiate Flute Choir conducted by Gareth McLearnon at the 2022 NFA Convention in Chicago. All entrants must be full-time undergraduate students enrolled in an accredited college, university, or conservatory during the 2021-2022 academic year.
Participants of the virtual 2020 and 2021 High School and Collegiate Flute Choirs will have the opportunity to join a live ensemble of their own at the Chicago convention in 2022. These participants, assuming they have remaining eligibility, may still audition for the appropriate 2022 flute choir, and they will be able to participate in both choirs if they are accepted into a 2022 ensemble.
All entrants must submit their entry, upload recordings/supplemental materials, and pay competition and membership fees by 11:59 p.m. Central Standard Time, Tuesday, February 15, 2022.
Each piece should be uploaded as a separate file in the following order. All uploaded files must be audio recordings. No videos are allowed.
