Audition Requirements and Information
Audition Requirements for ALL Applicants
Every applicant is required to upload a VIDEO at the time of application submission. You will not be able to submit your application without a media file. There is no upper time limit to the size of the recorded files submitted. (See http://www.kent.edu/blossom/apply/repertoire.cfm for repertoire requirements). Applications not meeting this requirement will not be processed.
Do not mail DVDs to Kent/Blossom Music Festival. They are not accepted. You must upload your videos with your Kent/Blossom Music Festival application at https://app.decisiondesk.com/clients/kentblossom2014/account/create. Should technical issues arise, simply click on the Help button on the left side of the screen. The Decision Desk staff will be pleased to assist. The following video formats are accepted: avi, m4v, mov, mp4, mpeg, mpg, ogg, vob, and wmv, and large file sizes can be accommodated.
Each piece of audition repertoire must be unedited. Video recordings must be produced with a single, fixed-focus camera (no zooming) that displays full-body view of applicant and instrument.
Accompaniment is not required.
