Repertoire examples are provided below as well as other information regarding the competition. Participation in the competition will also serve as an audition into the music department, and those who place may also receive a scholarship to Limestone College.

All performances must be accompanied, except for cases in which no accompaniment is indicated. Entrants are encouraged to bring their own accompanists. Limestone College staff accompanists will be provided for an additional fee of $30.00. An original copy (i.e., no photocopies) of the score with the tempi clearly indicated (metronome speeds), must be sent with the competition application, or upon completion of the online application. If your selection appears in an anthology, a copy of the score will be accepted by mail, but the original must arrive with the student on the day of the competition.
