Approved Concertos

Each Semi-Finalist will be allotted 25 minutes to perform portions of two concertos during the Semi-Finals. At least one concerto performed at the Semi-Finals must have an asterisk(*), as these are approved works for the Final round. The application process will ask you to indicate the two concertos you wish to perform if selected as a Semi-Finalist.
