Do the excerpts need to be from the NWS repertoire list?
The NWS repertoire list is for the live audition only. The video should consist of a solo work and any 3 contrasting orchestral excerpts.
I know the live audition cannot be accompanied, but can I have accompaniment on my video application?
We prefer that your video not be accompanied; however, those with accompaniment will still be accepted.
Does my video need to be in one continuous take?
While we prefer one continuous take, you my splice together your video but keep in mind that you may only upload one video to your application.
I am having trouble uploading my video, do you have any suggestions?
There are several things you can try to troubleshoot this problem. Be sure to use Internet Explorer as Mozilla and Google Chrome often have issues. Make sure that you are using an Ethernet chord directly connected to your computer. Wireless connections can cause this problem. Many applicants with this issue have resolved it by going to a school and using a different computer on a different network.
