Antendees must be paid in advance, so sign up as early as possible. If you signup as competitor, OK to add $75 to your application fee of $140 for yourself. $75 for spouse; guests rate: $150 is charged all other guests attending the finals and dinner on the same day. $25 charge for attendees at competition round if dinner is excluded. Competitors are allowed family (children) at the finals, but we must charge $75 for the dinner to help cover costs of children requiring seating. The menu is varied and should accomodate all tastes. We encourage competitors to be there. If you are a competitor and receive an award and are not there, you may never receive it. Remember, discretionary awards are round independent, and it is not uncommon for pianists, who did not advance, to receive one of several discretionary awards offered by the panel of jurors. Be there! It's important to receive these publically supported awards in person.
