REPERTOIRE INFORMATION

NOTES:

  • If performing a multi-movement piece, It is recommended that you perform the whole piece. But if the piece is longer than 10 minutes then please edit it to fit in the 10 minute time frame. But round two performances should be no less than 4 minutes in length. In the cases of a collection of shorter pieces contained within a larger collection (I.e From My Little island, Aldridge or  Songbook, Trevino) please use your discretion. Again remembering that submissions should be between 4 and 10 minutes. The following list contains some suggestions of pieces that you may use to compete in round 2. The list is not exhaustive.
