Proposals are welcome from performers and presenters to appear in the Flute Festival Recital Series and Special Interest Workshops. Proposals for Recitals and Workshops should consider the Festival theme ‘Expanding Horizons’. The proposal should include all music to be performed with the full names of the composers, work (with movement titles) and exact timings, including a good estimate for unfinished compositions.

The Festival also seeks three teachers to design, coordinate and run a three session mini-course for the adult learner.

Some of the masterclasses offered will be theme specific: tone, technique, articulation, rhythm, expression, how to practice or exploring a specific style/genre of playing (e.g. - extended technique, beatboxing, low flutes, baroque).  To make the masterclasses more interactive for attendees, there should be set repertoire to be performed by delegates interested in performing in the masterclasses.

We are also calling for Australian educators to contribute to the Professional Learning Day.
Applicants should include a current CV, DVD and/or URL links.
The closing date for the submission of proposals is August 31st, 2018.
Successful applicants will be notified by October 31st, 2018.
