> Flute Factor
Flute Factor is a talent show and not a competition. This means that not the best player has to win, but the one who knows how to inspire others. This way upcoming talent gets a chance. We are looking for talents who also have the guts to present themselves on other stages. You must therefore be both musical and creative and possess the Flute Factor. For example, the winner of Flute Factor 2018 played at the Kinderprinsengracht concert for Zapp TV.
If you are already an advanced talent and/or are a student in a training for young talent, you participate in the category young talent of the Dutch International Flute Competition. In this category you are also judged on your technical qualities and you are already working on your career as a flute player.
