All presenters and performers may elect to use conference pianists at a rate of $50 for the performance and rehearsal. This includes the group recitals (Barbara York Tribute, New Works, and Professors)

Presenters will be assigned a 30 minute time slot to present and/or perform at the conference. 

Only those registered to compete at the conference in the Susan Slaughter Solo Competition, Ginger Turner Ensemble Competition, Mock Orchestra, and Mock Military Band Competitions are eligible to participate in masterclasses. During registration, all competitors can  enter the lottery to have the chance to play if they would like.
