I have a string quartet comprised of students aged 12-15. Should they be in the Youth Artist level? They are interested to take part in the Rising Star category. May I know whether the 2 pieces can be 2 movements of the same work?

Thanks for your message. Yes, your students should apply to the Youth Artist Age Group at Rising Star Category. They can summit either two complete works or two movements of one work.

Is there a repertoire list? Are there age categories? What is the difference between rising star and artist?

We do have different age groups. Please check out our regulation page
We don't require specific repertories. Participants choose their own repertories.
