All directors entering ensembles in the 2023 MusicFest Recording Festival must upload scores and recordings of all performance pieces through their online registration by April 15, 2023. After their ensemble’s performance has been adjudicated, directors will be contacted by MusicFest to schedule their one-hour clinic with one of the three Adjudicators/Evaluators. MusicFest will broadcast all recorded ensemble performances as part of the May 15-19 festival schedule. As in the live festival, Honour Award and Ensemble Award plaques will be awarded.
Recordings must be:
Video format (not simply an audio track)
No splicing is permitted within pieces
No mixing, balancing or other effects (ie. reverb) is be permitted.
