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.
Participants in the Review and Adult Review receive written evaluation by the judges but are not eligible for scholarship prizes.
