Dailey wins NFA Piccolo competition
Posted: Thursday, August 18, 2016
Consortium professor of flute Cara Dailey won first prize in the biennial Piccolo Artist Competition at the 2016 National Flute Association Convention in San Diego, California.
As a competitor, Dailey performed two recitals at the convention - first as one of six semifinalists, and then as one of three finalists. Each recital consisted of different repertoire, including works by Antonio Vivaldi and Robert Beaser, as well as Stephen Hough’s Paradise, a new work commissioned for the 2016 Piccolo Artist Competition.
The National Flute Association is the largest flute organization in the world, with 5,000 members from more than 50 countries.
Dailey has been a member of UE’s music faculty since 2013 and is also principal flutist with the Evansville Philharmonic Orchestra.
