High School Solo Competition

The recording does not need to include a pianist.

 

Submission of Materials: Audition material will be submitted through a video recording posted on a site like YouTube or through a file storage service like DropBox or Google Drive.

 

Performance: The winner will be invited to perform his or her selection on a recital at Woodwind Day. The winner of the solo competition must be present at Woodwind Day; otherwise, the next runner up will be named winner.

*Note: If the winning selection has a piano part, the Woodwind Day recital performance must be accompanied. If no pianist can be found, the piece may not be performed, but the winner will still be acknowledged on the recital.
