MMF Concerto Competition
The Mostly Modern Concerto Competition is optional, it is not required.
All interested instrumentalists & singers who are attending MMF may audition for the Mostly Modern Concerto Competition. The audition repertoire is your choice, from the 20th Century onward. The audition requires a single movement of the concerto only (single movement concertos are acceptable). Winners perform the entire concerto the following summer. The Mostly Modern concerto competition will take place in the first week of the festival and the applicant is responsible for setting up a 20-30 minute rehearsal with Amir Farid, our pianist for the competition.
1-3 winners will be chosen to perform the concerto with the AMOrchestra the following summer (2020). Winners receive full tuition scholarship for the following summer, with their participation for the entirety of the festival (R & B not covered).
You MUST ensure that the orchestral materials are available by the following summer, from the composer or publisher (rental, purchase, or ad gratis) and also that you have either a piano reduction to give to the accompanist, 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.
Once accepted to the institute, instrumentalists and singers may sign up here for the competition.
