NEW THIS YEAR! THE NANCY CLEW ELLER ARTIST COMPETITION is open to all flutists ages 18 and older by the date of January 29th, 2021. Up to five finalists will be chosen. 

RECORDED AUDITION: Sonatine by Dutilleux

The piece required for the Final Round will be Fantasie No. 2, A minor, TWV 40:3 by G.P. Telemann (all movements including repeats).

Finalists selected to the Final Round during the 2021 Convention will prepare a 20-minute program of their own choosing (including the Telemann selection). The time limit includes any time between pieces. The 20 minutes Final Round repertoire must be submitted with the application, and performers will be bound to these repertoire selections.

The program should demonstrate diversity and a variety of styles and periods. This may include single movements of works and unaccompanied pieces. It is not necessary to perform all movements of a single work, but any individual movement of a work must be performed in its entirety. Cuts may be made in the accompaniment and repeats in the performer’s chosen repertoire is at the decision of the performer. Performers will play the repeats in the required Telemann selection. Selections including prepared piano and other chamber music will not be permitted. Single movement works composed for flute and orchestra will be permitted—please no concerti or orchestral reductions.  A piano will be provided—any other equipment needed for performances is the responsibility of the performer.
