Summer Music Festivals
I have been looking into music festivals (high school student) and was looking at the Heifetz Music Institute. All the players sound amazing and seem very talented, and I was wondering what level you have to be to get accepted as a high school student, since I know the age varies a lot. Is there anyone here that has been accepted and could tell me what they played/ at what level? Do you have to bean extremely talented prodigy to get in?
I'm also a bit curious. Just wondering, but what level is the OP? Like the OP, I just want to know what a person thinking about applying looks like.
I went last year when it was virtual. The level was quite varied. I know some kids who were absolutely spectacular and others who were just very good. I played stamitz concerto and some Bach at quite a good level. It’s expected your playing romantic concerti by the time your there and the level of performance is very high.
Have you applied yet? In theory at least the application period is closed, but the waitlist is still open. The format with so many teachers in each studio seems good for trial lessons before heading off to college or grad school.
