Applications are now open for NTU Music’s annual Vocal and Instrumental Competitions. NTU and Confetti HE students are invited to submit their audition videos, ahead of the competition finals in April.

Who can enter?
These competitions are open to all NTU and Confetti HE students – you don’t have to be involved with NTU Music or play / sing to a particular grade or level to take part.

What’s the prize?
We’ve got cash prizes available for each competition, with £100, £50 and £25 up for grabs respectively for first, second and third place.

How do I apply?
Film yourself singing or playing two contrasting pieces, which together are no longer than ten minutes in length, and upload it to our online application form. Landscape video formats are preferred.

If you’re selected to take part in the finals, you’ll perform both pieces from your audition video.

Is there a deadline?
You must complete our online application form, and upload your audition video, by 5 pm on Friday 26 February 2021.

What happens next?
If you’re selected to take part in the finals on Wednesday 28 April, we’ll contact you by email to invite you to perform in front of a professional adjudicator. We hope that this will take place in person on the City Campus; this will be determined by COVID-19 restrictions. In the instance that the final takes place in person, an accompanist will be available and should be used instead of a backing track, where possible.

Email music@ntu.ac.uk with any questions or to find out more.
