Competition Registration

6 + 14 =

We apologize for making you fill this form out again. Often, and nearly always in the Youth Competition, the competitor is not the person who rendered payment. Thank you for your patience.

Due to limited space, not every student will have the opportunity to perform in masterclasses with the guest artists. Performing students will be chosen by random drawing.

In the Youth Division, three (3) competitors will be selected to participate in the final round.
In the Open Division, 8 (8) competitors will be chosen to play in a semifinal round. Of them, 3 finalists will be chosen to perform in the final round.

Competitors will be evaluated on their technique, musicianship, and overall presentation. Judges’ comments will not be made available to competitors. Competitors are encouraged to inquire for comments from the judges directly only after the competition has ended.

Choice of music is entirely at the discretion of the competitor. All music must be performed from memory. A competitor may perform the same or different music from round to round without penalty. It is expected that every competitor’s choice of music fits within the time allowed for each round. If a competitor exceeds the given time allotted, that competitor will be asked to stop but at no penalty to his/her evaluation. All judges’ decisions are final.
