Applying to the Festival

Applications for the 2019 Festival may be completed entirely online. The application will open in late December 2018, 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, 2019. 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.
