Honors Recital for All Instruments
Students who would like to be considered to play on one of the daily afternoon Honors Recitals, audition by sending one YouTube video audition link of one performance of one well-polished, memorized piece from the Suzuki repertoire (with accompaniment if applicable).
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. Audition videos are judged anonymously by an impartial, rotating committee of experienced teachers. The committee chooses performers who will 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.
All completed applications and YouTube video audition link must be received online by April 10. No late applications are accepted. Students are chosen by a nationwide committee of teachers.
Audiocassettes, videotapes and DVDs are not accepted. For those selected to play, a staff accompanist is provided for a rehearsal and the recital performance.Honors Recital Application
