Performers should plan their programme carefully. It should be balanced, showing variety and contrast of style and mood but also favourably reflect the entrant’s performing style.

Stage presence and presentation of the music is an important part of performance and will be part of the evaluation.

All entrants into the recital classes will be heard in the same session and for other entrants to listen to each other. The classes are likely to be held in the early evening.

Please introduce your programme to the whole audience, not just the adjudicator. The adjudicator will comment separately on musical performance and presentation from the stage as part of the response to the performance.
