Tafelmusik Winter Institute: Application Process

 
 

Application Process 

 
Application deadline: October 11, 2017
Notifications of acceptance will be sent out October 20, 2017.
 
Please note that TWI is only open to experienced players of period instruments only.
 
The application form for TWI 2018 is hosted on YAP Tracker. You will need to create a free YAP Tracker profile to complete the application (create one here). Please read the information on this page before submitting your application.
 
Note that you will need to submit the following materials on your YAP Tracker application:
  • A recent CV
  • Audition recordings - audio or video files are fine; see below for exact requirements. If you are unable to upload your audition recordings right away, you will be able to submit your application without them and return to your application later to upload them.
In addition, all applicants must submit a reference letter. Reference letters must be sent directly by your referees, and must be received by Tafelmusik by October 11, 2017. Reference letters can be emailed to twi@tafelmusik.org or can be mailed (in a sealed envelope) to the Tafelmusik offices (427 Bloor Street West, Toronto ON, M5S 1X7).
 
Audition repertoire:
 
Winds/Strings
  • 2 contrasting baroque solo works (with or without accompaniment; in the case of multi-movement sonatas or suites, one substantial movement or two shorter movements qualify as one of your two solos)
  • The audition recording MUST be played on a period instrument.
Harpsichord/Lute
  • 2 contrasting solos (in the case of multi-movement sonatas or suites, one substantial movement or two shorter movements qualify as one of your two solos)
  • 2 contrasting examples of continuo playing, preferably in a chamber setting (or orchestral if the continuo is clearly audible)*
*If you do not have any current recordings of continuo playing, you may make a recording of some continuo excerpts without other instruments. Please contact TWI@tafelmusik.org for a list of excerpts.
 
 
NOTES:
  • Submitting audition recordings and a reference letter is optional for applicants who attended TWI 2017 or TBSI 2017.
