The Chicago Flute Club is excited to announce the 2022 Annual Student Competition. We are creating a new format this year. The 2022 competition will consist of an online Preliminary Round and an in-person Final Round. Registration will be open on September 1st, 2022! Students will submit their recording at the time of registration. Please click on the registration button, when available, at the top and bottom of this page to register. Application details, competition rules, required repertoire, and other information can be found below.
All candidates must register and submit a video recording of repertoire online by the October 23rd, 2022 deadline to participate in the Preliminary Round.
There will be 5 finalists chosen in each division who will then perform for the Final Round in-person with piano (where needed) at Harper College in Palatine, Illinois on Sunday, November 13, 2022 (12-2:30 pm - New Time). Finalists from the preliminary round will be notified on November 1, 2023 by emails. Finalists must be available to perform in person for this Final Round. There will be 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place plus two honorable mention winners in each category announced at the end of the Final Round performance. Finalists may invite family and friends to attend this special round of the competition.
VIDEO file does not need to be professional quality. Smartphones and similar recording devices are acceptable and encouraged. We highly recommend standing at an appropriate distance from the recording device to be able to hear you clearly.
The repertoire must be video recorded in the sequence listed below under each division. Contestants can video record works separately and then combine them together into a single video. Only one YouTube video link should be submitted. No acoustic manipulation nor audio filters may be used.
The video on YouTube must be unlisted and named with the last and first names of the candidate followed by the division signed up for. For instance, UNDERWOOD_Susan_Senior_Division
All candidates must paste the YouTube URL short link in the registration form, thus submitting it for adjudication.
