I have a question about the video submission. Does it HAVE to be the piece or pieces they are competing with?

Best regards,

I'm really confused about how to apply for this competition for my kid. We are local in Chicago. After filling out the application form, what else do we need to do? Is there any clear document to tell us how to apply?

Thank you,

Greetings Charley--thanks so much for your note. Sorry for the delay getting back to you! Yes, you can just apply here and because you are local, you can apply for the commuter rate of $1,100 for the whole week. This is a competition/festival and everyone must participate in the festival if you want to compete. Please reach us at richtermaniac@gmail.com with additional questions.

Dear Chicago International Music Competition,

I am a pianist from North Carolina and a recent graduate of the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. I also happen to have spent my first year of undergraduate studies at Wheaton College. I was excited to hear about the CIMC and am very interested in participating. Unfortunately, I have other commitments starting August 1st, during the masterclass portion of the event. I am wondering if you would allow participants in this situation to only take part in the competition during the last three days of July. If so, I am also wondering if the price of participation could be reduced accordingly. Thank you for your time and help. I look forward to the possibility of participating.

My best,
Owen Dodds

Hi Owen--thanks for your note. Well, it's our policy that everyone participates in both the competition and festival however we might be willing to make an exception. Can you stay for at least one additional day of the festival?

Thanks for letting us know!

Dear Sir/Madam,

I just registered my daughter for the Chicago International Music Competition and Festival. In order to pay for the registration fee, I'd like to know whether you accept personal check or credit card?
