Later today, we will publish the list of semi-finalists in Orchestral Performance and Orchestral Conducting.
If you are NOT chosen as a semi-finalist, the competition is not yet over. Different from many competitions where contestants who do not reach the semi-finals are eliminated without further consideration or communication, each contestant, including those not advanced to the semi-finals, whether an ensemble or individual, will receive an evaluation.
Evaluations will be emailed AFTER the winners are finally tabulated and announced in June. In this way, The American Prize seeks to provide encouragement to every one of its contestants, regardless of location, category or stature.
