Barbara Philleo High School Division
The Barbara Philleo High School Division inspires and motivates through goal-oriented performance and learning opportunities for high school students, offering young musicians guidance and perspective on performing with others, introducing them to the world of chamber music, providing opportunities to hear concerts by professional ensembles, and encouraging them to continue to express their own unique voices through music and collaboration.
- High School Division ensembles consist of students who are in 9th-12th grade during the 2021-2022 academic school year.
- Division determination is based on the highest grade level in the ensemble. For example, if three members of a quartet are in 9th-12th grade and the fourth member is enrolled in an undergraduate program, your ensemble should enter in the College Division.
- Each entering chamber ensemble should consist of 2 – 6 performers.
- Musicians who currently reside in Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, and Florida are eligible to apply.
