Solo Recital for All Instruments
Students who would like to be considered to play on one of the afternoon solo Recitals, audition by sending one YouTube video audition link of one performance of one well-polished, memorized piece from the Suzuki repertoire. If the piece is multi-movement, submit only one movement. Piano accompaniment is required on your audition video unless your piece is composed for solo instrument without accompaniment.
Recitals are approximately 45 minutes in length and participants are chosen though a video audition process before Institute. Approximately 8 students per recital will perform, representing all instruments and a variety of levels. Performers who will be chosen who best represent fine examples of Suzuki performance for their age and level. Therefore there is a very strong preference for repertoire from the Suzuki books. Students must perform the same memorized, polished piece which they submit for audition. Only one audition per student can be submitted.
Deadline: June 1st
All completed applications with YouTube video audition link must be received online by June 1st. No late applications are accepted. Audiocassettes, videotapes and DVDs are not accepted. Click here for instructions on submitting a YouTube video link.
For those selected to play, a staff accompanist is provided for a rehearsal and the recital performance.
All students applying will be notified by email on June 15th and students who are chosen to perform will be assigned a day for their performance. Great care is given to programming recitals; changes of performance days are not possible.
All rehearsals with piano accompaniments will take place on Monday (for the Wednesday recital) and Tuesday (for the Thursday recital), 1:00-1:50 pm. These will be the only rehearsals with the staff pianist.
