We are 5 days away from the last deadline on February 22! If you are applying (and we hope that you will!), please take a moment to read this.
NO ENSEMBLE NAMES OF ANY KIND ON THE CD/DVD PLEASE. This includes what's marked on AND inside the discs. As I check the recordings, I am seeing TOO many discs with your ensemble name or other competitions as the file name (!). What you submit as application materials is YOUR responsibility.
Imagine this scenario: Sometimes judges with the best intentions cannot help but to Google who you are. It really is in your best interest to keep yourselves as anonymous as possible.
Thank you for your cooperation in pursuit of a fair competition!
Ayako Tsuruta, Artistic Director
