I would like to apply for the piano duet category. Can we use the music sheet or do we need to memorize it?
Thank you for your consideration

Hi, I am making a submission for chamber music (duo) under Emsemble Division. The 2 boys are age 11 and 12 years old. However, under the age group category at the application form, there isn't an option for "Young Artist". Do I select "Young Musician III"?
thank you.

I am very interested in your festival, and I have applied for it. I have some questions.
1. what should I do after I submit the application form?
2. How can apply for the scholarship? (I have submitted my video links in my application form) When can get the result of my scholarship?
3. I choose to participate in the session 2 (8/9-14), I just want to make sure that I will participate in this session, since I saw that I need to contact you about which session I will participate in your website.
4. Can I choose which professor I want to have lessons with? When and how to do that?
5. What will be included in your workshop, since I saw that in one session I will have three private lessons and two workshops.

Thank you so much for your help and look forward to your reply!

Hello, I would like to enter my child's (Joaquin Wong) first piano competition online. He just turned 8, has been taking piano lessons for 2 years. What group should he enter? Young Musician II or III? How many piano submissions can he enter? Should the video be uploaded at the time we submit application online, or can we register him online first then submit the video later? When is the deadline for video submission, same day for online submission on July 15? He would like to play Mozart's Sonata 16 Allegro or Rondo (or both). What is the registration fee for each group and for each piece submitted?

Look forward to your reply.

Frankie Wong (parent of Joaquin Wong)

I am very interested in your competition and festival. I have two questions.
1. Can I submit the repertoire in my recording which is different from the repertoire that I plan to perform in lessons of Festival?
2. How can I apply for the scholarship?
Thank you so much!

Hi. My name is Asher and I’m interested in applying to the piano competition but on the application it looks like even when I select competition only it still automatically placed me in a session of the festival which I don’t want. Any suggestions on what to do? Also is the competition completely online? I can’t afford to go anywhere right now for an event like that.

Thank you!

Greetings Asher, 
Thanks for your message about the Chicago International Music Competition and Festival. Don't worry about the Festival dates on the application. If you choose only to participate in the competition. Our application system will put you on the competition only list. We won't charge you the festival fee. 
Hope it helps

Good evening, my name is Allison Lovera, I submitted 2 applications for the competition, But it says here that I have to contact you to pay the fees, how does this works? I am a little bit confused.

In addition, I want to say that I had to submit the chamber group application twice because in the first one I missed putting down the time length of each video. I am sorry.
