Entries and Fees

All entries are to be made and paid on-line via www.stardom.com.au using the Stardom payment system.  No late entries/late entry fees will be accepted. 


Entries strictly close Friday 12th April 2024, 11:59 pm Adelaide Time.

RULES FOR THE FLUTE DIVISION
The syllabus contains rules for each section.

Competitors, teachers and parents are advised to read the 2024 Rules and Conditions of Competition carefully.


Other information

Competitors are asked to enter the repertoire they are performing including the title of each piece and the composer directly into Stardom at least 7 days prior to the competition as stated in Rule 22 in the General Rules.

This speeds up the booking in process on the day and reduces the potential for errors.

 

Note re Sections F611, F612, F622 and the Eisteddfod Concerto: these are considered to be equally prestigious.  Competitors who are preparing an entire sonata or suite should consider entering the Complete Flute Sonata or Suite Section, and competitors who are preparing an entire concerto should think about entering the Adelaide Eisteddfod Concerto.

The David Cubbin Flute Medallion will be presented to the most promising flautist in the Open Flute Section, at the Special Award Winners Concert held at the end of the competition season.


Prof. David Cubbin founded the Flute Society of SA in 1972 and was its first President.  He was Principal Flute in the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra from 1955 to 1964, Lecturer in Flute at the Elder Conservatorium from 1956 to 1973 and a foundation member of the University of Adelaide Wind Quintet.  He was Professor of Music at the Tasmanian Conservatorium from 1985 to 1990 and President of the Australian Flute Association from 1988 to 1995.  He died in May 1997.


The Ray Rosser Memorial Award will be presented to the most promising flautist from the 10 Years and Under and 12 Years and Under Sections at the Special Award Winners Concert held at the end of the competition season

Ray Rosser was a keen amateur flautist who competed in the first ever Darwin Eisteddfod in 1961.  As a young boy he played in the Lakemba Primary School Fife and Drum Band (Sydney) under Victor McMahon.  Ray studied flute with David Cubbin and Alison Rosser OAM.  He worked with deaf children, was a member of the Flute Society of SA and helped with the Second Australian Flute Convention in 1976.   He died in 1990.
