Competition deadline extended to June 12th

The application deadline for the TROMP international percussion competition is extended to June 12th 2020.

Due to COVID-19 and worldwide measures most music schools are closed. We realize that many students may have difficulties accessing instruments and recording resources.
Therefore we extended the application deadline to June 12th 2020 (initially May 1st).

Although it is uncertain how long this situation around COVID-19 will last we hope that extending the deadline will give all percussion talents the opportunity to apply to the competition.
Please note that for the application no video is required and that you can change your application any time before June 12th.

Your application checklist:
• A recent live sound recording with 1 work for mallets & 1 work for set-up
• Program for each round
• A recent, high quality portrait photograph (>1MB!)
• 2 letters of recommendation
• Your resume

Or check all the rules and regulations:
