Concerto Competition : Study 2013
Each year, the School holds a Concerto Competition. Auditions are open to all students. Contestants may perform any solo work with orchestral accompaniment that was originally composed for their instrument and that does not exceed 18 minutes in length. Preliminaries are held on the second Sunday of the festival; finals are held on the third Sunday. Memorization of standard solo repertoire is required for the final round and the performance.
