FALCONE FESTIVAL ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING THE COVID-19 CORONAVIRUS

March 15, 2020

During the past few days, the impact of the COVID-19 Coronavirus has altered and challenged most every aspect of normal functions. In the USA, as well as in many international locations, universities and public schools are now shut or in virtual instruction mode for the coming weeks, and the regular plans for student and professional musicians and teachers have been suspended for the time being. Access to facilities, lessons, pianists, and recording engineers have become challenging.

As a result, the Falcone Festival Board has today supported two changes to the preliminary application requirements for the 2020 festival.

The festival application deadline has been extended to April 30, 2020, giving an extra month to complete and submit materials.

The requirement of submitting recordings of works with piano accompaniment has been waived. The required repertoire remains the same for 2020, but it is your choice whether to submit with or without piano accompaniment.

If you have already recorded and/or submitted a Falcone application for 2020, there is no need to alter your entry. If you opt to record without piano, please make every effort to observe notated rests of one measure or less, but to reduce any longer rests in the music.

The Falcone Festival looks forward to our 35th annual festival and competition, taking place at Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp, Twin Lake, Michigan, from August 7-10, 2020. We have every expectation that the festival will occur as scheduled, and will continue to provide updates as the Coronavirus situation develops.
