"This event is open to all nonprofessional performers."

Does nonprofessional performer include college professors?

When it says Not enrolled in college, does that mean haven't gone to classes yet? I am turning 18 June 4th, and I start college classes the following august...so where do I fit in?

Last year, graduating seniors were in the middle division, if I recall correctly. And, no, college perfessors shouldn't be competing(should they?)
I'm looking for this year's event to be even better than last, now that some more buzz has been created. It's a great time to visit the Washington area and Roger and his gang are very motivated to make this event run well.

To piggyback this...

Does nonprofessional performer include military bandsmen?

Not seriously... just wishful thinking. With some of my collegues of different instruments in their own instrumental competitions, they allow military musicians to fall into the "nonprofessional" category.

FWIW, the North American Brass Band Association (NABBA) defines non-professional players as those who derive less than 75% of their income from actual performing. Thus, there are many college brass and percussion professors who participate in this "amateur" activity.
