REPERTOIRE GUIDELINES & TIME LIMITS

  • Solo Division: 1 or 2 pieces. Memorization is encouraged, but not required. All entries should be high performance quality. If the piece is unmemorized, an original copy must be used by the student and a second original copy must be available for the judge. 
  • Duet entries are allowed and may also consist of 1 or 2 pieces. The division entered is determined by the average of the student’s ages rounded down. Original music is required for the judges, and if the duet is not memorized the performers must also use original music. Duets do not have to be memorized to be duly considered for the state honors recital.
  • Two piano duets are eligible this year. Please contact your region chair for more information on how to enter this division. No piano concertos will be accepted. Your region may not have two pianos available, and you may need to enter the online division. Please plan accordingly.
  • Instrumental and vocal entries are accepted and are judged separately.
