The repertoire required for the prescreen recording and the live audition are the same. Each movement of each piece submitted for prescreen MUST be uploaded as a separate file (e.g., a Bach prelude and fugue must be uploaded separately, each movement of a Beethoven sonata must be uploaded separately). Each uploaded file must also be labeled to indicate the composer, title, and movement (if applicable). This labeling must be done in the designated “TITLE” field in the Slideroom portal. Please note that if you plan to use your prescreen recording in lieu of a live audition, your prescreen MUST be an unedited, single-camera video, performed in one sitting.
