Please provide a Programme of music for each round of the competition. You may repeat as many pieces as you wish from one round to the next, or none at all. You can choose to include in a round only one/two movements from a sonata - or concerto-type work (instead of the whole work) to ensure your programmes are of the required duration. A maximum of one piece per round may be changed by 31 March 2018 at 16.00 hours GMT.
If you wish to apply for the Sir John Manduell Prize, state which piece (maximum 7 minutes) you will be playing from your Preliminary Round programme for this (must have been composed, not arranged, after 1968).
You will now be required to pay £50 through our online portal. Failure to do so will result in the application not being completed, and not being considered. The entry fee will be refunded if your entry is not accepted, but once you have been notified of acceptance it will be non-refundable.
The 2018 Competition will be held from 3rd to 7th April in Routh Concert Hall at Bromsgrove School. The Finalists' Concert will take place on the evening of Saturday, 7th April at 7.00pm.
The Bromsgrove’s existence depends entirely on public generosity. Charities, commercial and professional organisations also give generous help. We would welcome your help too.
