Competition Rules

  • The Claire Johnson Flute Soloist Competition is open to all flutists.

  • The competition consists of a preliminary round audition and a final round recital, both held in Dallas.
  • Students may enter the appropriate division or may choose to perform one level higher.
  • Floot Fire reserves the right not to pick a 1st place winner in a division.
