The triennial Baroque Flute Masterclass Competition will select three baroque flutists to perform for a master teacher at the 2026 NFA Convention. This competition is open to all flutists.
All repertoire will be performed on Baroque flute/traverso with harpsichord when basso continuo is specified for all LIVE rounds. The NFA will provide a harpsichordist for the semifinal and final rounds, although contestants may bring a harpsichordist at their own expense. All pieces should be played with repeats as written, with ornamentation at the performer's discretion.
All entrants must submit their entry, upload recordings/supplemental materials, and pay competition and membership fees by 11:59 p.m. Central Standard Time, date TBA.
Each piece should be uploaded as a separate file in the following order. Movements may be uploaded separately if you choose. All uploaded files must be audio recordings. No videos are allowed.
