In an effort to highlight the many fabulous flutists and teachers in Utah, and with the support of our generous anonymous donor, we have created a new category for our sonata competition. 

The UFA Artist Performer competition is open to anyone with a completed undergraduate degree in music major. Performers will submit an audio (only) recording of the assigned piece by January 20th, 2023 at 11:59pm. Three finalists will be selected to compete at the festival on March 11th. The winner will be announced at the final concert of the festival along with all other Sonata Competition winners.  The winner will perform at our Sonata Competition Winner’s Recital at 1pm on March 25th 2023, at Zion Lutheran Church on Foothill Drive in Salt Lake City.

* In an effort to highlight the many great professional flutists in  Utah, prior winners of the Artist Performer Competition must wait 5 years to compete again. This rule ONLY applies to the Artist Performer Category, and not other category of the Sonata Competition. *

The Utah Flute Association Sonata Competition and High School Scholarship Competition is largely funded through the donation of an anonymous donor. This competition would not be possible without their ongoing generosity. Our donor has graciously supported the rising generation of Utah flutists and the Utah Flute Association for almost 10 years, and we cannot thank them enough.
