During the initial screening process, judges will only listen to one minute of each work. Please select the minute of music which you would like them to hear and indicate where the excerpt begins and ends on the application form.

Finalists will be selected for a final interview. The interviews will follow this general format:

  • Short personal introduction
  • Briefly introduce the first work as if you are presenting it to a class of 25 third graders
  • Briefly introduce the second work as if you are presenting it to a group of music connoisseurs
  • Conclude with a 4-5 minute interview

If you have any questions, please contact Brandon Bell, Director of Education and Community Initiatives.
