1.2. Young musicians can also apply together as an ensemble.
1.3. The application will end on Monday 7 August 2017 at 12.00.
1.4. Enrollment is done through the registration form, which can be found at http://www.klassiekophetamstelveld.nl/open-stage.

2.1. By Monday 14 August 2017, applicants for the Open Stage will be informed about the selection.
2.2. During the selection for the Open Stage, several aspects like instrumentation, repertoire, age and musical level will be considered in order to compile a program that is as fun, entertaining and varying as possible. For example: if several young artists apply with the same piece (e.g. Beethoven’s Für Elise), a choice will be made based on either original instrumentation, repertoire, age or musical level.
2.3. The festival wants to give as many young musicians as possible the chance to participate in the Open Stage, so the chance of selection slightly increases if two or more young musicians together form an ensemble.
2.4. Young musicians who have not performed before in the Open Stage will be given priority.
