Solo & Ensemble Fest – Saturday, April 24

RAFA’s 17th annual Solo/Ensemble Fest will be held Saturday, April 24, 2021. We have decided to continue with our virtual programming during the continued COVID-19 pandemic; you will have two ways to participate this year!

  • Take your time to get the perfect recording and don’t sweat your internet speeds! You can submit a pre-recorded video to our judges. Scale requirements will be announced on April 10th (chosen from the list required for your division) and your video is due by April 17th.
  • Or, participate in the live performance event and communicate directly with the judges at your appointed time live via Zoom on April 24th. You’ll be notified a week in advance of the time that you should sign on (usually between 1:00 – 5:00pm).

You can view your repertoire list, register either online or by mail-in form, and get more information over on the Solo and Ensemble Fest page.

Registration due by March 15th

IF YOU HAVE ALREADY REGISTERED

Registrants should receive an email with instructions on how to participate. If you are submitting a video, you will receive a Dropbox link to submit your video. See video instructions below. If you are participating via Zoom, you will receive a Zoom invitation link, which will tell you what time you are performing. Please plan to “arrive” several minutes early so there is time to test your connection.

Video submissions: Recordings are due by April 17, 2021.

  • All participants have been assigned a Scale, Etude, and have chosen a piece to submit. We ask that you name items with the following format:
    FirstnameLastname-Scale; FirstnameLastname-Etude; FirstnameLastname-Piece
  • Soloists: Make sure to center yourself in the frame so the judges can see both your face and your flute. If you can take a few steps away from your microphone, the sound may come out better.
  • For Ensembles: Please use the above format but submit under the name of person uploading the files.

Please submit videos in one of the following formats:

  • .MOV
  • .MPEG4
  • .MP4
  • .AVI
  • .WMV

Please do not submit files that are 4K video. We ask that you submit videos no higher quality than 1080p so files aren’t too large. If possible, keep each video file below 5 GB in size. The length and the recording quality with determine the overall size.  If possible, also please use a connected microphone to your recording device. Using just the built in microphone from a laptop, mobile device, desktop or phone typically won’t provide high enough quality audio.
