You may apply in one or both of the following categories:
First, be sure that your completed application and all mp3 files are together in one Dropbox file clearly labelled with your full name and your instrument. We will only consider application materials in your file at Dropbox. Then invite us to share your files using our email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
All application forms and recordings must be received by March 4, 2022. We will acknowledge receipt of your materials by e-mail immediately, and we will e-mail you again in early April with notification of acceptance or rejection.
All accepted participants will be asked to sign a contract and to send us a short biography and digital photo which will appear in the festival program book.
Repertoire assignments will be posted at our web site in May.
CATEGORY 1 : CHAMBER MUSIC
We welcome applications from individuals for:
Violin - viola - cello
Your recordings, preferably from live concerts and with music in contrasting styles, should contain the following:
- two or three chamber music works or movements.
- one or two solo works or movements (may be accompanied by piano or orchestra)
Each piece from the repertoire will be played in two concerts, each person plays in four or more concerts. Participants will be in two or more chamber music groups performing together with the professors, and in groups with the other participants.
Be sure to tell us if you are playing a first or second part in string quartets and ensembles where more than one person plays the same instrument.
A NEW IDEA in CHAMBER MUSIC
If you can answer YES to two or more of the following, we invite you to apply in this category:
Do you enjoy singing and/or dancing? Do you yourself improvise? Are you interested in trying to improvise? Do you compose? Are you interested in composing together with a group guided by the artistic director? Have you made arrangements? Do you like good new music?
We welcome applications from individuals for the following instruments and voice:
Violin, viola, cello, flute, clarinet, bass clarinet, oboe, bassoon, saxophone, brass instruments, acoustic guitar, accordion, cimbalom, voice ... If you play an instrument we haven’t thought of, please contact us in advance!
Your recordings, preferably from live concerts, should include 10 to 15 minutes of chamber music works, or solo works, arrangements or improvised works. You may choose to send a combination of those, but, please do not just send music of you playing unaccompanied solo.
You may apply individually, or as a group.
After we listen to your recordings, we will arrange a telephone interview with you between March 21 and April 2, to help us make final selections.
