Recitals

Second round: Performance.

CIYMC 2020-2021 will host virtual recitals for those participants who cannot attend in person.

Usually, the participants are required to perform the same composition for both rounds (Auditions and Recitals).
This year is special. And we are allowing and encouraging the students to learn a new composition for the Second Round of the competition for extra motivation.
The participants can perform the same composition but will need to submit a new video for the recital.  
The video needs to be recorded in horizontal format with no background noise. 
 
All contestants must wear formal attire for recordings.
