Performers National Signing Day offers the higher education community the opportunity to present chamber/faculty ensembles and Master Classes to demonstrate the caliber of instruction at that particular institution. Each collegiate event will be 45 minutes in length, with the majority performed without sound reinforcement. Each performance group selected will be allocated two performance or master class presentation times (on separate days) during over the course of three days.
Over the course of the three-day Performers National Signing Day event, students will participate in the process of showcasing and testing for approximately seven hours. The remaining time will allow the student, their parents, and teachers to interact with collegiate and non-institutional scholarship donors in the exhibit hall as well as attend in-house concerts, recitals, and Master Classes. The collegiate community will have excellent opportunities to showcase their best talent as well. Opportunities are open for the following:
2 Vocal Jazz Ensembles (Modest sound system allowed as provided by performing ensembles)
4 String Ensembles
3 Woodwind Ensembles
3 Brass Ensembles
2 Percussion Ensembles (Responsible for providing own instruments)

There is no fee to apply for these opportunities. Applications will be reviewed and notification of status will follow. Date/time preferences will be assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis. The fee to participate is $230 per Ensemble, Recital, or Master Class. The $230 participation fee covers both performance slots.
