To be considered, you must be in U.S. grades 6-8 (or equivalent international study level) during the 2020-2021 school year. All application materials must be submitted electronically following the instructions below.
Please note: Enrollment for the 2021 Series is now closed.
How and When to Submit Your Materials
Required Application Materials
Step 1: Complete Application Form
If you have received an Invitation Number, please include it on your application form—this number will allow us to determine whether you have already been nominated.
To give appropriate attention to all applications, our Selection Board prefers to receive materials sooner than later. Applicants must electronically upload all required application materials to our website on or before 11:59 PM Eastern Time on February 10, 2021, to be eligible for the 2021 Series.
If you are not selected as a Junior Finalist, all but a $15 application review fee will be refunded—once a participant is accepted, his or her full deposit becomes non-refundable. Please note: The total program cost does not change based on the time a student’s application is received.
Once you have completed the online application process and submitted your audition deposit, you will receive your Customer Account Number on the Application Confirmation Page. This will be different than your Invitation Number and should be used when submitting your remaining application materials, so we can properly link these submissions to your application.
Step 3: Complete the Performing Biography Form
Provide more information about yourself and your musical background by completing the brief Performing Biography Form. Please use your Customer Account Number, included in the confirmation email sent after completing the online Application Form (above) so we can match your biography to your application.
Step 4: Submit an Audio Recording
