2018 SW Division Conference Application to Perform

As mentioned in Kansas City, the 2018 SW Division conference dates are March 21-24, 2018, on the campus of the University of Houston. I know Matthew McInturf and David Clemmer are working diligently to plan a wonderful conference for our division.

For those universities interested in applying to perform, electronic submissions are due by 5:00 p.m. on Monday, May 15, 2017. Once the juried review process has concluded, invited groups will be notified via email on or before Friday, June 16. Those directors interested in submitting recordings should email me directly ASAP stating their intent to apply. I will then send a follow-up email outlining the application process, complete with detailed instructions for uploading audio files to a secure server.

I will convene a panel to review the recordings (void of university identification) and pass along the jury's recommendations to Matthew McInturf for selection. Please note the following requirements before submitting an application:

-Only unedited, live concert recordings from the current (2016-17) academic year will be accepted.
-Total length of recordings should be 30-45 minutes and include musical variety.
-Statement of intent to fiscally support the ensemble's performance at UH must accompany the application. This agreement must be signed by a designated university administrative official (i.e., Dept. Chair, Dean, Provost, etc.).

Should additional questions arise, please do not hesitate to contact me. Further conference information will be forthcoming as specific plans are finalized.

Wishing you a wonderful conclusion to the spring semester!
