On Saturday evening there will be a professional/college age concert and on Sunday afternoon there will be a student show for studio and high school age students. We are looking for ten works that are 12 minutes or less for the Saturday evening show and at the moment we haven’t set a limit for the Sunday afternoon show. We are charging a $25 fee for and works presented on the Sunday concert. We are also offering for a $50 fee, feedback from three adjudicators.
