Solo Competition Guidelines

Harps

- Shared harps will be provided for the competition. Be sure to specify lever harp, semi-grand, or concert grand harp on the registration form so we may provide a similar harp for your use. Rehearsal time on the harp will be limited. Please arrive to the competition already warmed up if possible.

Dress

- Semi-formal to formal stage dress is appropriate. - If you are wearing a skirt or dress, please make sure it hits below the knees. If there is a slit, it should also stop below the knees. - We recommend practicing in your competition outfit (including shoes!) so you are at ease when you compete.
- Shoes are required.

Music

- You must have the original printed music to hand to the judges. No other copies are necessary. If purchased digitally, please include a printout of the receipt.
- You should number the measures of your music at the beginning of each line. You do not need to number each actual measure.

Scoring

- Each judge critiques 10 different qualities of the performance: dynamics, rhythm, note accuracy, etc. A maximum of 100 points is given by each of the 3 judges.
- Competition winners are determined by the total cumulative points (300 maximum) given by all 3 judges. It is possible that not all winning levels will be represented if none of the contestants achieve enough points.
Points needed to achieve placement for each level:
- First Place 270 – 300 points
- Second Place 240 – 269 points
- Third Place 210 – 239 points
