Unfortunately, we have made the difficult decision that we must cancel the festival due to the pandemic and the uncertainty in the coming months. We plan to launch again next year, so keep your eyes out for our announcement in the fall! Stay safe. 

Fritz Gearhart and Hal Grossman,


Step 1:

Pay the $25 application fee using the PayPal button below.

Step 2:

Record your audition video. The video should consist of two selections (at least 5 minutes each) of your choice demonstrating your strengths as a player. Next, click on the pdf for your instrument and prepare the short excerpt as part of your video. (If you apply as a pre-formed ensemble, you only need to provide a one video of your quartet playing. You will not need to record the excerpts.)




Once you have recorded your video, post it to a media platform such as YouTube. It can be a private video. Make sure the video you post has your full name listed. Once you post your video, write down the link to your file, you will need it to put into our application in the final step.

Step 3:

A letter of recommendation is required. Your recommender may send it directly. Email is preferred. If your recommender provides you with a letter, you may send it as an attachment.
