    I studied mozart violin concerto no.1 in Bb Major… In the requirements it says nos. 3, 4 and 5 only… Will you consider the. Concerto no.1?

  1. Dear Ricardo,

    The Mozart concerto must be 3, 4 or 5. You also have a choice of any major 19th or 20th century concerto, and may play that instead of the Mozart unless you’re applying for a position (CM, Asst CM, Asst Principal) in which case you would have to play both the Mozart and a choice concerto. Thank you.
