All interested instrumentalists & singers who are attending MMF may audition for the first ever Mostly Modern Concerto Competition. The audition rep is your choice, from the 20th Century onward.

You MUST ensure that the orchestral materials are available from the composer or publisher (rental, purchase, or ad gratis) and also that you have either a piano reduction to give to the accompanist at the competition, or a playback file, without the solo part, that can be played back on a laptop.

You MUST upload either a PDF of your concerto piano accompaniment part or a playback audio file (MP3 only).

Please note that the orchestral instrumentation for the work must be scored for winds in threes or less (3 flutes, 3 oboes, 3 clarinets, etc.). Smaller works, i.e., for chamber or string orchestra, are perfectly fine, but works must be for orchestra. The audition will take place in the first week of the festival. There will be up to three winners who will perform with the AMOrchestra.

Once accepted to the institute, instrumentalists may sign up here for the competition.
Registration for the competition begins April 1st. Everyone will receive an email to sign up.

DEADLINE MAY 18
