Review and Contest

The Review and Contest is an annual event sponsored by RAFA to further the education of RAFA member flutists. It is an opportunity for flutists of all levels of playing ability to perform for professionals who provide written comments and suggestions for improvement. Students (grades 1 through 12 or at least half-time students in college or graduate school) may enter the Review or Contest, and adults may enter the Adult Review. Each participant performs two pieces for evaluation by two judges.

Contest participants compete against other flutists in the same division and grade level. Contest winners receive prizes of scholarship money and perform in the Contest Winners’ Recital at the RAFA Flute Fair on Saturday, November 11, 2017, at times to be announced.

Adult flutists and students who choose not to compete may enter the Adult Review or Review, where they receive written evaluation but are not eligible for scholarship prizes.

Repertoire Lists 2017 – 2020

Please note: The division 4 repertoire list for 2017 has been revised as follows: Valse Gracieuse (W. Popp) has been replaced by Andalouse (E. Pessard), which is also in the Rubank Concert and Contest Collection. This change was made to avoid duplication with the middle school district solo, for which Valse Gracieuse has been chosen.
