In lieu of an actual performance, submissions for the Composition Scholarship are accepted through the first January Saturday used for auditions.

Students who audition under the Composition Scholarhip Audition format are applying for consideration for that scholarship only. A separate audition is required to be considered for acceptance into the festival groups

Each submission will be adjudicated by a panel of adjudicators (a minimum of four, maximum of eight) via email.

Compositions must be original concepts and not arrangements of other's work. Compositions may be written for any solo or musical ensemble.
Submissions are made via email using PDFs of the score.
A recording should be of the appropriate ensemble for the composition, but MIDI recordings are accepted. Piano reductions are not acceptable for the recording.
The MAXIMUM total performance time of the composition (determined by the tempo & time signature markings AND the recording time) is limited to 7 minutes.
The composer MUST provide a Statement of Artist Intent with their submission along the PDF of the score and the recording of a performance of the piece.
Please refer to the appropriate section of the current All State handbook for clarification and complete requirements for this audition.
