Submission Rules

Participating in the Virtual Solo & Ensemble is meant to be fun, enjoyable, and a way to continue your pursuit of music education during our statewide school closures.

Here are a few things to keep in mind as you prepare and record your prepared selection.

  • Participation in this year’s event is free of charge.
  • Prepared selections may be of any length, difficulty, and type (concert band, solo etude, etc.)
  • Percussion is welcome to use whatever equipment you may have at home, including any surface for snare drum performance.
  • Each student may submit up to three separate prepared pieces.
  • All performances will be adjudicated by a band director from District 7 and written feedback will be given via the email you provide.
  • Submissions may be recorded more than once; choose your best one for submission!
  • Both video and audio recordings are accepted.
  • Students need to provide a copy of their music in some form (picture, PDF, etc.) if at all possible. This can be uploaded alongside the video/audio file.

Performances will be adjudicated by a director who specializes in that instrument, where possible.
