Paul Richards wins composition competition for flute and piano piece

Paul Richards, professor of music at the University of Florida (UF), has won the 2017 Flute New Music Consortium Composition Competition for his flute and piano piece "Entanglements." The piece was composed for Dr. Kristen Stoner, profesor of music at UF, who has recently performed the work at the National Flute Association Conference and other venues. The competition included entries from around the world and was adjudicated by members of the consortium, an organization of flute players dedicated to promoting and performing new music for the instrument.

Richards was a finalist in this competition in 2014 for another work composed for Dr. Stoner.
