    Students who obtained an examination result of 90 or over (First Class Honors with Distinction) and/or Gold Medal students, are invited to perform at the recital. If you meet this criteria and are interested in performing, please consult with your teacher and also review the recital repertoire selection criteria below prior to submitting your application. Due to recital time constraints, not all students may be selected to perform.

    The application to submit a recital piece will be available shortly!
