Apprentice application:

Submit a recording of 3-5 contrasting works that you feel to be representative of your playing.  These may include solos, excerpts, live performances with orchestra or other ensemble, etc.  As the Festival’s emphasis is primarily orchestral, bear in mind that an applicant’s facility, primarily on C trumpet, and optionally with Bb and Eb/D, are most helpful in determining suitability for selection (i.e. piccolo trumpet excerpts are not required).
