Repertoire Candidates will perform three memorized pieces representing three of the five style periods, Baroque, Classical, Romantic, Impressionist and Contemporary. The total time is not to exceed 20 minutes. Repertoire should be equivalent in difficulty to OMTA syllabus level 9 or 10.

Students must supply a legal copy of the music to be performed.

Description Beginning in 2016, the Beverly Soule Memorial Scholarship competition is open to high school juniors and seniors studying with a member of the Eugene District OMTA, whether or not the applicant plans to continue music studies after graduation. A junior who wins the award is not eligible to compete the following year.

The adjudication will take place in a neutral setting with an adjudicator selected from outside the Eugene District. The adjudicator will give written comments to each student in a format of his or her choosing. The performance will be judged on overall quality with attention to:

  • Musicianship, including dynamics, articulation, rhythm, pedal, sensitivity, imagination
  • Fluency, although a small slip of memory or occasional note error should not affect the outcome.
Awards First Place: $700
Second Place: $200

The winner will be invited to an OMTA meeting or to the OMTA Teachers Recital to perform and receive the award.
