Group I – Up to age 9
Group II – Ages 10–12
Group III – Ages 13–15
Group IV – Ages 16–18
Repertoire and Stipulations
Minimum level of repertoire must be comparable to J.S. Bach’s Inventions or Short Preludes.
Students may audition with any number of pieces (a movement from a Sonata is considered one piece).
Students may not enter any piece which is longer than 10 minutes. Teachers must time all compositions.
The maximum time allotted for each audition is 10 minutes. Recorded performances of more than 10 minutes will be disqualified.
All pieces must be memorized.
Each candidate must submit one video recording of their repertoire via Google Drive. If recording multiple pieces, participants must record them all in one take, to emulate a live audition.
All candidates must pay an audition fee of $100.
Fees are non-refundable after the application due date.
Students will be evaluated by an international panel of three adjudicators. The judges will provide participants with feedback, and make decisions on awards.
First Prizes: $200 (all age categories)
Second Prizes: $150 (all age categories)
Third Prizes: $100 (all age categories)
All awards are determined at the full discretion of the judges and will be presented at the conclusion of the Winners’ Recital. The judges’ decisions are final. Participants are eligible to receive more than one award but may receive First Prize one time only, until they move to a higher age group.
Winners’ Recital performers are expected to purchase 5 tickets to the Winners’ Recital from PTC (total cost: $110).
