Required Application Materials
Step 1: Complete Application Form
If you have received an Invitation Number, please be sure to include this on your application form; this number will allow us to determine whether you have already been nominated.
When completing your application form, you will be required to submit an application deposit ($200 US if completed application is submitted on or before December 4, 2019; increases to $295 US after December 4). Applicants must submit all required application materials on or before December 4, 2019, to be eligible for the reduced deposit and first-round review. 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.
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. Use this number as you submit the 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 (see above) so we can match your biography to your application.
