Q: I missed the deadline for Intrada applications, but I would like to apply next year. What should I prepare for as part of the application and audition process?
A: If you are interested in applying for Intrada next year, please contact our Learning & Participation Manager for further details.
Q: I am not free on 2 September, can I still apply?
A: If you are unable to attend the in-person audition, then unfortunately you cannot participate in the scheme.
Q: I am a student living in Europe, but I am not a European citizen. Can I still apply?
A: If you have a work visa or a student visa which offers the possibility to work in the EU/UK then you can apply for the scheme. If you are unsure whether this applies to you, please contact our Learning & Participation Manager.
Q: I have access to a historically set up instrument but I have only had second study lessons, can I still apply?
Q: I have no access to a classically set up instrument for my Haydn excerpt, can I still apply?
A: Your in-person audition will need to be performed on the correct historically set up instrument for the repertoire you are performing, and if you are accepted onto the scheme you might be invited to participate in a classical project, in which case you would need access to a classical instrument. However, if you are unable to gain access to a classical instrument for your video application, we will accept your classical excerpts at 415Hz.
Q: Can each piece in my application be recorded in a separate take, or does the whole audition video need to be recorded in one sitting?
A: It is okay to combine separate recordings of each movement, as long as no editing occurs within the movements. You can upload your audition as one video link, or a YouTube playlist.
Q: If I play one movement from a work in my application video, can I perform the whole work in my in-person audition?
A: No, you are required to perform a whole work for your audition, so including a movement which is the same as your application video is not permitted.
Q: What time is the application deadline?
A: The deadline is 11.59pm on Sunday 31 July 2022
Q: How should I get my travel costs covered?
A: If you are selected for an in-person audition, we will be in touch with you to arrange your travel and accommodation requirements.
