 Auditions Requirements

  • Auditions are open to professional musicians from age 20. Live audition time: about 15 minutes.
  • At least two contrasting pieces are required for the audition; for example: Classical & Romantic periods. Must include a short virtuoso selection (if the virtuoso selection is from the Romantic period that satisfies both requirements). It is recommended to offer 4-5 compositions for the audition (including some from the applicant's proposed recital program), as the committee prefers to see a wide selection and may request short "samplings".
  • Application must include: artist’s repertoire list, a suggested recital program of 60 minutes without intermission, and a biography.
  • Winners will be notified the week of April 22nd with performance dates by email/phone.
  • The Consortium's concert-series presenters will make separate concert arrangements with the selected artists/ensembles.
