The Rochester Flute Association is happy to host our popular “Pre-Solo Festival” Performance Clinic. It will be held on Saturday, January 6, 2024 at The Hochstein School from approximately 1:30-4:00 PM. The event will be free of charge.
This is a great opportunity for any flute student to perform their scales, solo, and sight-reading in a mock solo festival atmosphere, and will give flute students an extra opportunity to fine tune their skills through a positive experience in solo festival performing. It is especially helpful to the first timer or the veteran who is trying to get that grade for All-State.
Flute students will receive advice from qualified judges/flute instructors. Adjudication sheets with constructive comments will be given to each student. No grade or score will be given. Students playing level 1-4 will be allotted 15 minutes. Students playing level 5-6 will be allotted 20 minutes.
The registration deadline for the "Pre-Solo Festival" is December 30, 2023.
Students will be contacted as to their performance time and room assignment by January 2nd.
When they arrive on January 6th, performers must report to the registration table where they will be given confirmation that their solo is in the current NYSSMA manual and directions to their assigned room. In the case of a large turnout, performance requests will be honored on a first come, first served basis.
Registration is online here. Navigate to the education tab, and fill out the pre-solo festival registration. Please have all solo information ready when filling out the form (title, composer/arranger, level). (Please note that you are not expected to play with a pianist for this event.)
We hope the efforts of the RFA will help you or your students have a successful solo festival.
Sincerely, Sophia Gibbs Kim Education Director, RFA
