• There is no application fee, nor is there a fee for selected performers. Likewise, audience members will be able to view these Master Classes entirely free of charge.
• Successful applicants who are invited to perform in the Master Classes may perform any public domain* work from the standard repertoire, and will be asked to notify Lessonface of the work to be performed one week in advance of their scheduled performance.
• Up to three performers and three alternates will be selected for each Master Class.

* Most works published before 1928. See the link from Cornell University Library for information on works in the Public Domain in the U.S. as of January 2023.
