ASI at Home Video Honors Recitals
Video Honors Recitals for 2020 will be compiled from recordings you send to us. The best videos will be woven into a recital movie that will be played during the 4:00 hour M-Th during the week of ASI at Home. The usual guidelines (below) apply. These performances are the highest level of performance given by any student playing at any age or level and on any instrument.
A committee will select videos for the Video Honors Recitals by video audition. Please review the guidelines and deadlines below for further information. Remember that your video audition is also your performance. This means that concert attire is required in your video, and you should bow both before and after you play.
Audition Guidelines for the Honors Recitals
In order for your recorded performance to be selected for inclusion in an Honors Recital, students should follow these guidelines:
Recordings should be created, with your teacher's help and approval, as an .mp4 file. Please upload your video to YouTube and copy the shareable link to the form linked below. Keep in mind that your recording will be evaluated by a committee, so the link must be shareable; if you don't want the video to be public, choose the option ("unlisted") that allows you to share the video with anyone who has the link. Your video should be set as "NOT appropriate for kids". If this setting is not observed, we will not be able to edit your video into the recital movie. The process for uploading to YouTube can be found here. You should play a piece that demonstrates your finest posture, tone, technique, musical tempo and expression.
- Piano accompaniment is recommended where indicated for instrumentalists and vocalists. The CD piano accompaniment is acceptable.
- Performances should represent the most polished piece, not necessarily the most advanced.
- Performances should be from memory.
- Remember that you should wear concert attire and bow both before and after playing.
- The deadline for the submission of the solo recital audition recordings is June 29, 2020. EXTENDED to 11:59 PM on JUNE 30. Please complete the ASI at Home Honors Recital Form, which requires your YouTube link for completion. A confirmation of receipt of your video submission will be sent via email as soon as it arrives,
- The decision of the committee is final.
