A selection that suits your festival
Festival organisers can create a tailor-made programme by choosing one, two or as many pieces as they wish for each of three classes. Please email team@elenacobb.com with any questions or to arrange a phone call conversation when advice is needed on the repertoire. As an example, please take a look at the classes chosen by the Southend Musical Festival.
Level

Performers in all categories must select pieces accordingly to their Grade/Level.
Adjudication
Adjudication will be based on the overall excellence of the performance and musicianship, e.g. text accuracy, musicality and general impression of which particular performance was better and stood out from the crowd.
Prizes
In addition to the cash prizes, the winners in each category will be invited to perform at the Winners Concert at the Royal Albert Hall (Elgar Room on 4 April 2019.
