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: email@example.com
All application forms and recordings must be received by March 3, 2023. We will acknowledge receipt of your materials by e-mail immediately, and we will e-mail you again at the end of March 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.
Participants in both categories will be performing in mixed groups with the professors and also in groups with participants. All repertoire is performed twice; each musician will be playing in four concerts.
You may apply in one or both of the following categories.
CATEGORY 1: CHAMBER MUSIC
We welcome applications from individuals for:
violin - viola - cello - piano - clarinet
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)
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.
CATEGORY 2: A NEW IDEA in CHAMBER MUSIC
This group of 4/5 musicians will compose, arrange and improvise together; the resulting work will be presented in festival concerts.
Open to classical performers who also have experience in one or more other forms (for example: improvisation, jazz, world music, composition, etc) and open to jazz and world music musicians with some classical training and/or experience.
We welcome applications from individuals playing any of the following:
violin - viola - cello - flute - clarinet - bass clarinet - oboe - bassoon - saxophone - brass instruments - guitar - accordeon - cimbalom - voice .....
Your recordings, preferably from live concerts, should give us a good idea of what kinds of music you play. Ideally, we would like to hear some solo playing (alone or accompanied), some chamber music and/or some non-classical music.
You may apply individually, or as a group.
After we have listened to your recordings, we will arrange a telephone interview with you and also speak to your references.
