It is open to piano, string, wind, brass, and voice students from age 9 up to age 26.

Students will perform one original memorized work (NO CONCERTI OR NO WORKS FOR SOLO INSTRUMENT AND ORCHESTRA) from either Baroque or Classical Periods AND one original memorized work (NO CONCERTI OR WORKS FOR SOLO INSTRUMENT AND ORCHESTRA) from either the Romantic/Impressionist or Contemporary periods in the allotted time.
Please consider the time limits when choosing your program. Judges may stop the performance of a piece or request the student to begin at another section of the program if the program exceeds the time limit. If the program exceeds the maximum time, the students will be stopped. This will not affect the outcome of the competition.
