Competitions



Concerto Competition Guidelines:
  • Members of the MAYS will perform their concerto with their own piano accompanist (MAYS does not provide piano accompanists but can help you find one).

  • The Artistic Directors will approve of your piece once it is submitted to make sure that it is a viable piece to perform with orchestra.

    • Your concerto must be memorized to be considered a candidate for concerto competition. However, students may perform with printed music simply for the experience of performing and receiving feedback from the judges.

    • All students will receive feedback from the judges.

      • The Concerto Competition will be judged by an independent panel of judges, and students will be scored. The students with the highest scores will have the chance to be a soloist with one of the MAYS orchestras.
