The State Competition
Highlights of some State-Track competition rules:
Instrumentation: Strings and Winds all compete together (ie. violins, violas, & cellos are all in the same category. Likewise, flutes & clarinets compete against each other.)
Repertoire: Specific repertoire rules are in place. i.e. String musicians MUST perform a concerto as one of their pieces. Vocalists MUST perform 3 pieces, each in a different language.
Judging: Only students who meet the high standard expected for competition at the State level will receive first prize at the branch level. Judges may opt to not award a first place.
Fees: Fees are set by the State. Parents will pay directly on the State website
