I’m thrilled to announce the prizes (so far) for our flute choir competition.
I talked to several flute choir directors about what prizes would attract them to enter a competition and, although they all said it would be lovely to win a prize, the most important thing was to have a goal to work towards and a platform to perform on. But when people hear what the first prizes are, I think it will really encourage them to enter!
Guo are very generously giving a G treble flute worth about £950 which will be awarded to the winner of the open category. This is amazing, every flute choir should want this!
The winning flute choir from the school age category will receive a £300 voucher towards a low flute kindly donated from The Vibe.
There will be other prizes for 2nd and 3rd place, including a £150 voucher towards flute choir music from Just Flutes, Top Wind are offering a voucher and Azumi are sponsoring a prize that every entry will receive and also every member in the choirs that win a place in the final will receive. They are still a secret at the moment, but I know everyone will want one!
Enormous thanks got to ABRSM, The Vibe, Azumi, Guo and Just Flutes, Top Wind, All Flutes Plus, Dawkes and Wonderful Winds who are all offering their support.
Now that should give you even more incentive to practise those flute choir pieces!
