Congratulations to each of the semi-finalists.  Save the date to be in the audience at the U of W – Eckhardt-Gramatté Hall – February 15th 2020.   These young artists will NOT disappoint.

Each audition time will be posted at the Eckhardt-Gramatté Hall and on the Women’s Musical Club website.

Admission: $10.00  Open to the public.

Twelve applicants will have a TOTAL STAGE TIME of 25 minutes each, to perform a variety of selections to display their talents. Order of performance at the Semi-Final audition will be random, except that there will be no vocal auditions before 11:00 am. We will try to accommodate those who have to drive into the city with an afternoon audition, and we may have to accommodate accompanists.

There will be rehearsal time in the Eckhardt-Gramatté Hall the day before the Competition Semi-Finals. There are no rehearsal rooms available the day of the competition.

Three sets of scores must be provided for the adjudicators and submitted upon arrival 30 minutes before an audition.

Adjudicators will assess the performances, provide written adjudications, and choose 3 Finalists to move forward to the Final Round. The Final Round contestants will be announced that evening, the Finalists contacted, and the results publicized. The recommendation of the Adjudicators is final and not subject to appeal.

The Semi-Final audition will be recorded as an MP4 and will be mailed with the individual adjudications to each of the contestants. There will be no recording except authorized by WMC.

Concert dress is recommended.

An audition program will be available for the audience. Family, friends and general public are welcome and may attend for any portion of the day. There will be no admittance during an audition.
