International ONLINE competition 2024

German Flute Society for young flutists 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 showcase them. This includes key competences such as instrumental and artistic skills, stage presence and individual presentation. This strengthens and enhances the international dimension of youth activities. Through differentiated international jury feedback, participants will receive support to improve the quality of their performance and thus enhance their chances in international competition.
