The Jan and Beattie Wood Concerto Competition is open to all full-session BMC instrumental students – previous winners are not eligible to enter again.
A student selects a concerto movement from the official repertoire list for their instrument and performs it from memory with piano accompaniment for judges. Previously recorded videos with orchestra or other ensembles are not permitted.
The 2020 Concerto Competition will occur in 3 rounds.
- A preliminary round will be held via video upload, May 1-31
- A semi-final round, held on campus, after arrival at Brevard
- A final round on Monday, July 6 (open to the public)
Winners perform with the BMC Orchestra in the "Soloists of Tomorrow" concert in July 2020 and receive a full scholarship to attend Brevard in 2021.
Repertoire for the 2020 Concerto Competition will be announced in November.
