The “Chamber Fest” combines flute and/or mixed ensembles in a festival where students play in a recital setting and are adjudicated by professional flutists.
Entrants will be given a room to warm up in prior to the beginning of the event, but all should be in the recital hall (MPR) when the "Chamber Fest" recital begins. Each group will be given a few minutes off stage to tune and warm up their instruments before their performance(s). We request, as a matter of courtesy, that all performers remain to hear the full recital unless they are otherwise committed.
Each ensemble should be 2 or more flutes, or mixed instrumentation (no piano).
- Elementary – through 6th Grade
- Junior – through 9th Grade
- Senior – through 12th Grade
- Adult – non-professional adults
- Adjudication panels include one or two professional flutists.
- Judges will assign ratings of Superior, Excellent or Good based on the quality of the performance.
- All judges decisions are final.
Awards / Awards Ceremony:
