Applications for the 2018 Festival may be completed entirely online. The application will open on December 15, 2017, and all links will be found here at that time.
Application parts: All applicants are required to complete an Online Application, submit an Audition Recording*, and pay a non-refundable Application Fee ($75, increasing to $85 after the March 1 deadline). Additionally, if the student's regular teacher is not a member of the GMCMF faculty, a Teacher Recommendation will be required. Finally, if need-based financial assistance is desired, the student will need to submit a Scholarship Application.**
The application deadline is March 1, 2018. Applications received after that date may be accepted if space is available.
*As an audition, the applicant should provide a recording of approximately 15 to 20 minutes in length, which may include any repertoire representative of his or her playing. A video recording is ideal if possible. The recording should not include scales or arpeggios, and accompaniment is not necessary. The application form allows the applicant to upload a file or provide a link to an audio or video recording online.
