Non-Competitive Workshop

The workshop is a non-competitive opportunity to receive feedback from festival adjudicators. After performing a single selection of their own choice, the adjudicators will offer written and verbal feedback to the participants and class. No marks, ribbons, awards or nominations are distributed. Memorization is not required. Both youth and amateur adult and senior musicians may participate. Participants may enter this class multiple times, once per selection they wish to perform. Registration is open annually from December 1 until January 22, with late registration ending on January 31 ( When you register for a class, you will be asked to declare the participant’s age or the duet’s average age (their age is calculated according to how old they were on December 31st of the year prior to the festival year). After registration closes, the festival schedule’s construction begins. Schedule protocol is that no class will exceed eight participants or ninety minutes in length. In situations where there are more than eight participants registered for a class or a class exceeds ninety minutes in length, participants will be separated according to similar age groups and then sorted randomly into classes of eight or fewer participants. If you and your music teacher are unsure about which classes to register for or have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the coordinator (Heidi - in advance to completing your registration.
