Is there a repertoire list? Are there age categories? What is the difference between rising star and artist?
admin 2021-04-13 21:53:17Reply
We do have different age groups. Please check out our regulation page https://www.cimcusa.org/page/solo.html
We don't require specific repertories. Participants choose their own repertories.

About Solo professional category (13-14 yrs old), mentioning requirement time 18 minutes, is it to be just 18 or 18+ minutes (<19mins)?

Greetings, The duration of the solo professional category can be over 18 minutes.

Good afternoon, I would like to ask if my duet (piano, violin) would qualify for the ensemble division. I only saw piano duos, or piano trios, or string ensembles.
admin 2021-03-30 01:55:44Reply
Yes, you can apply the ensemble division.

Hello, I have a question about the contest. Can I submit my Girls' Choir and the Women's Choir to the competition (both groups are amateur). If so, how many minutes of the program should be sent? What is the cost of participating in the competition?

Hi there! I’m interested in participating the competition this year. Would you let me know if I can wear masks during recording? There will be a recordist in the hall so I think it will be better to wear a mask.
admin 2021-03-23 08:42:08Reply

Yes, you may wear a mask--there are no rules against wearing a mask. Probably most people will be also wearing a mask, too

We’ve already paid the application fee, submitted videos and notified that our son has been accepted to the competition, so are we to fillet out the application again online? Will the application fee already paid be deducted? Please advise so we can complete and send remaining funds for him and I (I’ll be staying with him that week). And as we are driving up from St Louis, is parking available as part of fees?

Our 2 daughters attended CIMC in Singapore and both had been invited for "Festival". So we are interested to join as per below name list:

1. Father
2. Mother
3. Daughter1
4. Daughter2
5. Son at 4 yrs old

The period of Festival Only will be during 30 Jul – 2Aug (4 days), right? So how much does it cost? Do we need to pay for 4 yrs old son and when is the dead line of payment and how to pay?

Best regards,
