Applications for the TEW Tuba Solo Competition can be downloaded using the link at the top of this page. Audio recordings must be submitted digitally via an online file sharing service. Competitors are asked to upload their entries to their own accounts on a major file sharing service such as Dropbox or Google Drive and send the link to the competition coordinator.
For the primary round all applicants must prepare a quality recording of the required pieces. You must use a piano accompaniment (unless the piece is unaccompanied). Please remember that your submission will be received along with many others. Therefore, it is very important that you clearly and accurately mark your submission with the following information:
Please create a folder on your chosen file sharing service that includes only your competition audio and application form. Use your last name as the file name for all files in the folder (for example, Johnson.aif). Please ensure that the folder contains only these items, and share the folder by sending an invitation to SSG Toby Furr.
Recording and application must be received by October 16th, 2017.
No editing of any type is permitted within each piece.
E-mail the filled in application PDF and links to digital entries to: SSG Toby Furr (firstname.lastname@example.org). Selected participants are responsible for all transportation and lodging expenses. All participants will perform with piano accompanists provided by the TEW.
To Qualify for Entry, You Must:
Observe the submission deadline. Send an unedited recording. Avoid all spoken dialogue on a recording unless it is explicitly called for in the piece. Observe instructions regarding the labeling of digital files.
