Online Honors Recitals

Congratulations on being selected to perform!

Students across Washington have worked hard all year.  WSMTA is excited to showcase their work at the first-ever Virtual State Conference.  Live events will be happening from June 17 – 19, 2021, and all presentations and recitals will be available through August 31, 2021.  Our Chapter and District Recitalists should submit videos of their performances to be posted on a special, publicly accessible page.

To submit a video or recording, please read the information and requirements, then complete the form below.

Information and Requirements

Recording
  • Record your selection(s) as many times as you would like, and submit your preferred version. Use your own piano, your teacher’s piano, or find another instrument on which you have permission to record.
  • Recordings can begin with the participant stating his or her name in a clear voice, but performers’ names will be listed above each video.
  • Performers can choose to bow at the end of their performance.
  • Recordings should be cued to begin within five seconds after the start.
  • Recordings should feature the work with which the participant originally entered.
  • Recordings should be uploaded to YouTube with visibility set to “Public” (make sure the comments are turned off). This will create a link for you to copy and paste into the online submission form.
  • If you are not familiar with uploading videos to YouTube, please watch this tutorial.
  • Upload videos by May 21st, no exceptions.  Only representatives will be posted, unless the representative bows out, in which case, we will ask the alternate if they’d like to submit a video.  Again though, we will not be accepting any videos after May 21st.

We look forward to hearing your music. We think you will find a silver lining in the process of creating your video entries!
