Sonata Competition

All video submissions due by February 20th, 2021

In an effort to include students of more varied playing abilities we have split the 4-6 and 7-9 ages into a novice and intermediate category. Novice is for students with less experience while intermediate should feature students who are playing at a more advanced level. Students may only enter one of the levels, not both. Please be judicious in choosing the appropriate levels. 

Editions are listed for each piece. For 10th grade and more advanced you may choose a different edition, but the judges will be working from the listed edition. For younger levels, please use the required edition so we avoid any issues with music discrepancies for our judges. 

The UFA is excited to announce that this year’s Sonata Competition will also have an out of state option. To compete as a non Utah resident you must be a member of the Utah Flute Association. Out of state competitors will be eligible to win a “best of” prize that is set aside specifically for those entrants

* Students may compete in a category above their age, but not below *
