Dutch International Flute Competitions #corona edition in 2021 (29/12/2020)

The #corona edition in 2021

After canceling our event in 2020 due to the corona crisis, we will organize online preliminary rounds in 2021. Confirm your participation before February 15th and share your video before May 1st.

On June 6 we will announce who will be invited to the live final round on October 22 and 23

Adjustments in 2021 due to corona:
Due to expected travel restrictions in the spring of 2021, the preliminary rounds will be held online and the live final rounds at the Adams European Flute Centre will be postponed till the fall of 2021. 
The full 15th Adams Flute Festival will not be organized until 2022.

Due to the restrictions the final round will be played with piano accompaniment instead of the South Netherlands Philharmonic. The compulsory work for the category master students has therefore changed. 

For whom is the Dutch International Flute Competition?  
Are you a bachelor or master student? Then register for your category. Normally about 100 flute students (usually from 25 different countries) participate in this competition annually.

Piccolo competition for students

Extra in 2021: piccolo competition for students:

The costs are € 22,50. Only after the competition this composition may be played in public. You can look at the

Professional pianist and marimba player:
During the final rounds the services of a professional competition pianist (and a marimba player for the piccolo competition) will be available in return for a fee of € 90.00. This facility is mainly intended for students from abroad. Limited rehearsal time is available at the competition facility.

Staying overnight:
Staying overnight during the final rounds is possible in group accommodation the Bekerhof. This is a converted farmhouse with very simple facilities. The costs are € 35.00 per night.
