NYO Solo Competition Rules and Requirements

Music
Solo competition participants must provide 2 copies of the piece that  will be performed at the first round. This selection is the one of their  choice. On the first week of March, all participants at that date will  be given results and the music titles that they need to order and  practice for the second and final round. These are the same pieces that  the winners of the competition will perform with the Orchestra or Band  during the Spring concert solo performance opportunity. Participants  must bring 6 copies of their piece to the second round and just the  original for the final round. If the music is not produced at the final  round, this may be grounds to eliminated.
 

Accompanist
Piano accompanists are not needed for the first round of this  competition. Piano accompanists are required for the second and final  rounds. This service is not provided by New Youth Orchestra, all  participants are responsible to search, hire and practice with their own  piano accompanists. Private teachers can help locate the appropriate  accompanist.
 

Results and certificates
All members will be given their results after all three rounds.  Certificates of participation will be provided to finalists who  participate in the second round. Certificates of achievement and cash  awards will be handed out to the winners at a ceremony immediately after  the intermediate and advanced Spring concert programs.

If for any reason this person cannot fulfill the minimum  requirements that are necessary to complete their responsibilities as a  NYO soloist competition winner or has to be dismissed from the NYO  organization, the title and awarded scholarship will be removed and all  certificates must be turned back into NYO.  The New Youth Orchestra  reserves the right to take away any prize and membership to anyone who  receives an award who cannot maintain the general policies set by this  organization. 
 

If for any reason there are not sufficient  participants and/or the level of performance does not meet the standards  that NYO requires, any category can be eliminated from the competition.  NYO reserves the right to make any changes in any form that may be  necessary at any time, in any case, all participants will be advised of  those changes via the NYO website, and/or email and/or social media.
