The first place winners will be featured in recital at the 2022 Flute Fair. Please note that finalists will be required to register for the 2021 Flute Fair. The deadline for preliminary recorded audition submission is January 15, 2021, and there is a $25 application fee in addition to a $25 membership fee for 2021.
