Directors, please read the following instructions carefully before submitting your students’ auditions for Tier 2 Solo & Ensemble.
The students performing and the repertoire piece to be video recorded and submitted through this DropBox link should be the same performers and repertoire piece that was performed at the live Tier 1 site back on January 15th. No substitution of performers or changing of repertoire is permitted between Tier 1 and Tier 2. Accompaniments for soloists must be live accompaniments for the video performance. Pre-recorded accompaniments are not acceptable for Tier 2 video submissions.
Since the video performances are intended to be viewed anonymously, do not have your students narrate or introduce themselves or their piece at the beginning of the video. Also, on stage tuning is not appropriate for the beginning of the videos. Either tune off stage prior to entering or wait to turn on the video until after the tuning is completed.
When registering your Tier 2 entry please use the Tier 2 entry code (example… D24Flute7) from the spreadsheet of eligible Tier 2 entries that was emailed to you from Jeff Quamo as the name for the entry. When uploading your files please be sure that your video files are in mp4 format and your music score files are in pdf format. Prior to uploading your files please RENAME your files to match your assigned Tier 2 Entry Code. For example: D56FemaleVocal5.mp4 & D56FemaleVocal5.pdf would be acceptable names for the files to be uploadedThe folder that you should select to upload your video and pdf of the music score should correlate with your Tier 2 entry code. For example, a violin duo with an entry code of “D14Violin8” should not be loaded into the “Mixed String Ensemble” folder.
