Playing from memory is not required.
Applicants are required to provide an accompanist. If unknown at this time, please enter 'TBD' for the accompanist's name. It is best to find an accompanist early on and submit your time constraints with your accompanist in mind—do so as early as possible. Finding an accompanist at the last minute can result in schedule issues that cannot be addressed.
