Round 1 of auditions will be virtual, consisting of a video recording of audition requirements. Audition video recordings may be submitted via YouTube from May 1st through July 1st. Finalists will be notified by mid-July 2024.

Round 2 will be for finalists, who will then participate in a live audition in mid-August. This audition may include requirements from Round 1, excerpts, plus sight reading. Finalist audition results will be shared late August 2024.
