Recording Assistance

  • 1st-Place Winners of the State MTNA Competition advance to a video-only Southwest Division Competition. All state representatives must submit a video performance to MTNA by Wednesday, December 4, 2019 at 3:00 PM Eastern Time.

  • In support of our State MTNA representatives, HMTA offers to provide a recording venue and sponsor the first hour of professional video recording for any 1st Place soloists and piano duets who request it (accompanist fees not included). A longer recording time may be requested for an additional fee.

  • For chamber music ensembles wishing to enter the video preliminary of the MTNA’s Chamber Music Performance Competition, HMTA offers to provide a recording venue and arrange for professional video recording. However, all expenses associated with the video recording (except for venue) will be the responsibility of the applicants. Please contact competitions@hmta.org by November 1, 2019 to request assistance.

  • State MTNA representatives and chamber music ensembles may choose not to accept HMTA’s recording offer, in which case they will be responsible for producing their own video(s) by MTNA’s deadline.
