We will have placement performances (not auditions!) May 8 and 9, 4-7 pm.
There is also a highly recommended parent meeting before the festival. May 9, 5:30 pm.
At this time you will be given additional information about the festival and you may ask questions about the festival, programs, necessary materials, etc.
Each participant will be placed in 2 chamber groups based on their placement performance. You will be notified about your placement performance time following your completed registration. If you'd like the opportunity to perform with the faculty, please prepare 2 contrasting movements from a solo piece (sonata, concerto, suite, etc.) or 2 etudes of contrasting styles (one technical, one lyrical). All others should prepare a solo piece or etude. If you have a pre-formed group and all members are attending the festival, you may perform together as a group. We will make sure that those who have requested to be in a pre-formed group are placed accordingly.
Please, don't stress too much about the placement performances. We just want to get a snapshot of your playing so that we get people placed in appropriate groups and with appropriate repertoire. Remember, this is supposed to be fun!
