Music performances may be up to 15 minutes with five additional minutes allotted for questions. Performances can be in one of the following categories:
- Original composition
- Composition in the style of a specific musical period, style, or composer
- Arranged musical work
For categories 1, 2, and 3, students must submit a full score (or a significant portion of a score if work is in progress) plus a link to a URL, or e-mail to email@example.com, an MP3, AIFF, or WAV file containing the performance.
For category 4, students must submit a link to a URL, or e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, an MP3, AIFF, or WAV file containing the proposed performance.
Playback resources available during presentation are audio CD and DVD.
Students can also propose a lecture recital or research and/or analysis abstract. In this case, students should follow the standard abstract submission guidelines for oral sessions.
