Welcome – Soyez bienvenue!

International ONLINE Competition of the German Flute Society e.V. for young flutists 2022 in the category flute solo

The aim of this competition is to give young flutists the chance to present their skills on an international platform, to compete with colleagues of their age, to develop their individual strengths and to present them.
