Registering for an Event

Log in to Auditionware to choose and register for your event. EVERYONE TAKE NOTE: When you register for a non-audition event, e.g. a workshop or conference, you are an “Instructor” and not a “Participant.” Please answer “No” to the checkbox about Participant.

IMPORTANT for Performance Festival Registrants – Register Piano Students SEPARATELY from Voice Students and SEPARATELY from Concert Instrument Students. In other words, make sure you have chosen the Piano Festival for Piano Students, the Voice Festival for Voice Students, and the Concert Instrument Festival for Concert Instrument Students. Please, do not mix them together!
