I am very interested in your competition and festival. I have two questions.
1. Can I submit the repertoire in my recording which is different from the repertoire that I plan to perform in lessons of Festival?
2. How can I apply for the scholarship?
Thank you so much!

Hi. My name is Asher and I’m interested in applying to the piano competition but on the application it looks like even when I select competition only it still automatically placed me in a session of the festival which I don’t want. Any suggestions on what to do? Also is the competition completely online? I can’t afford to go anywhere right now for an event like that.

Thank you!

Greetings Asher, 
Thanks for your message about the Chicago International Music Competition and Festival. Don't worry about the Festival dates on the application. If you choose only to participate in the competition. Our application system will put you on the competition only list. We won't charge you the festival fee. 
Hope it helps

Good evening, my name is Allison Lovera, I submitted 2 applications for the competition, But it says here that I have to contact you to pay the fees, how does this works? I am a little bit confused.

In addition, I want to say that I had to submit the chamber group application twice because in the first one I missed putting down the time length of each video. I am sorry.

I have a string quartet comprised of students aged 12-15. Should they be in the Youth Artist level? They are interested to take part in the Rising Star category. May I know whether the 2 pieces can be 2 movements of the same work?
admin 2021-04-21 02:26:05Reply

Thanks for your message. Yes, your students should apply to the Youth Artist Age Group at Rising Star Category. They can summit either two complete works or two movements of one work.

Hello, I just want to ask. How if the repertoire exceeds the time duration? for example in young musician III category the requirement duration is 8 minutes, can we play 12 minutes duration of repertoire?

thank you
