For 2021, Rising Stars will take place as a live, online masterclass opportunity for students  under 18 and with at least 1 year of playing experience.Our clinician is Alicia McQuerrey, flutist with the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra! Bring any polished piece, etude, or excerpt (no accompaniment required) and receive live coaching! Space is first-come/first-served. Masterclasses will be held in 1-hour slots between 11:30-3:30, with students grouped by age/level. Approximately 4 students will play each hour, with more time given to advanced students as time and space allows. All students are invited to audit, included with your Flute Fest registration! Sign up today!

Registration Information:

  • Students must be under 18 and with at least one year of playing experience. 

  • In order to participate in the Rising Stars Masterclass, students must submit Rising Stars registration, register for Flute Fest($5 students 12 & under; $10 students 13 & over), and become a member of UMFA (if not currently a member) by February 5, 2021. There is no additional fee to participate in the Rising Stars Masterclass.

  • Suggested performance time is no more than 3 minutes (excerpts of longer works are permitted). If you prefer (or are concerned about internet connection speed), you may submit a YouTube link of your performance which will be shown at the beginning of your time. A high-speed internet connection is highly recommended as any interruptions due to internet speed will not be able to be made up. For both pre-submitted performances and the live class, you will need a camera set-up that allows the clinician to see you from hips up, including your entire flute. Please ensure that the camera and screen are around your eye level so you can be seen straight on. Test this set-up ahead of time with family or your private teacher and ensure you can be clearly seen and heard.

  • The times will be assigned by February 12th.
