$250 application fee each applying ensemble.
The Music for All National Festival audition process offers a unique opportunity, serving as a tool you can use to take your program to the next level. All auditioning ensembles receive recorded and written evaluation feedback from the evaluation panel.
The evaluation is “blind”–ensembles are not identified in the audition process. Evaluators recommend ensembles that demonstrate an exemplary level of excellence to receive an invitation to perform at the Music for All National Festival.
A completed application consists of the completed online Festival application form submitted with the audition recordings, administrator signatures, and application fee.
Obligation if Accepted: Submission of your application is a commitment to attend and perform if accepted (unless you select the “Input Only” box on your application). You will be obligated to attend if invited; please be sure that you have booster and administrative support and approval prior to applying.
“Input Only” Audition Option: Ensembles who want the evaluation and input from the panel of audition evaluators, but who do not wish to receive consideration for an invitation to the Festival can choose to send a recording and application for input only by checking the “Input Only Option” box on the online application.
