the #corona edition in 2021
Of course we pay extra attention to the safety of our participants, visitors, staff and guests with regard to the corona virus. We follow the corona guidelines of the Dutch government as mentioned at www.government.nl and will adjust the organization of our competition accordingly. We accept no liability for the consequences of these adjustments for our participants and staff. Visit this site regularly for the latest updates regarding changes in our competitions.
For whom is the Dutch International Flute Competition?
Are you a bachelor or master student or a young talent? Then register for your category. A maximum of 100 flute students (usually from 25 different countries) can participate annually in this competition. Register before February 15th! We offer you a well-organized competition and the opportunity to gain contacts for life...
Adjustments in 2021 due to corona:
The preliminary rounds will be held online and the live final will be postponed and played with piano accompaniment instead of the South Netherlands Philharmonic. The compulsory work for the category master students has therefore changed.
The finalists will play in the same category as they played in the preliminary round, even if they have moved up in age, for young talents, or level.
Read here all information of December 24, 2020 to the already registered particitipants of the live event in April, 2021.
