The Alabama Federation of Music Clubs will sponsor Student/Collegiate Auditions for persons in or of the state of Alabama. In an effort to enable more students to participate and to allow for more flexibility, AFMC will be holding video auditions.
All applications must be postmarked by January 15. The video auditions are due by March 1.
Awards categories include piano, voice, organ, strings, woodwinds, brass and percussion.
Listed below are the general rules for eligibility:
- Entrants must have reached the 19th but not the 26th birthday by the application deadline (January 15) of the audition year.
- Entrants must be native-born or naturalized citizens of the United States of America.
- An entry fee of $30.00 must accompany the official application and be sent to the state auditions chairman (postmark deadline January 15). The check or money order should be made payable to the Alabama Federation of Music Clubs. No cash. No refunds will be made.
- Student membership in National Federation of Music Clubs is necessary, either through a student organization (i.e. a college/university that is a member of NFMC) OR as an individual member. Former State winners within the age requirements are eligible to enter future auditions. Former NFMC first place Student/Collegiate Auditions winners are ineligible.
- Students of artist advisors and officers of NFMC may enter the auditions provided the advisor or officer is not involved in conducting or judging the auditions.
