     1. Students who will be in grades 9-12 for the 2022-23 academic year residing in Indiana or neighboring states are eligible to apply.
     2Individual selections should not be edited or spliced, but rather performed continuously. Adjudicators are more interested in hearing an honest
         performance than a flawless one.
     3Attention should be given to the quality of the recording. Soloists should be more prominent than the accompaniment (if used), and the site of the
         recording should be as soundproof as possible.
     4Applicants are encouraged to have their instructors and/or directors review their recordings before submission.
