CVHI COMPETITION/WORKSHOP SUGGESTED REPERTOIRE LIST

 

AUGUST 2019

 

THE MISSION AND PURPOSE OF THE CVHI COMPETITION AND WORKSHOP IS TO:

• Inspire the continuation of student preparation over the summer months

• Teach competition preparation, form, self-analysis, stage presence and repertoire

• Instill the importance of technique and expression in each and every student

• Provide a middle-ground competition that bridges small, local competitions to competitions in the larger, national and international arenas.

 

The following is a comprehensive list of suggested repertoire pieces at each level, to assist student and teacher in selecting comparable competition repertoire. The pieces listed below are a guideline and are not required repertoire for the 2019 competition. List A contains pieces that are more technique-based, with a repetitive theme or idea, along with suggested etudes and studies.
