BFS COMPETITIONS 2019 - winners

Wednesday 20th February - Regent Hall, The Salvation Army, London


We were delighted to hear so many wonderful flute players at the BFS Competitions on 20th February 2019. Well done to everyone who took part and thank you to the parents, teachers, friends and family, and audience members who supported the flautists.

Many thanks to our adjudicators - Lisa Nelsen, Alena Walentin, Jonathan Rimmer and Ileana Ruhemann - and accompanists - Juliet Edwards and Richard Shaw - for all their hard work, and to the BFS helpers who helped the day run so smoothly.
