All applicants must upload two individual video clips via YouTube to their YAP Tracker application. Each selection must be sung from memory and accompanied by a pianist. The pianist must be visible in the video and the pianist's name included in the description. The two videos must be uploaded separately, and the two in total must not be longer than 15 minutes. Do NOT send videos of entire operas or concerts. Videos should be recent and no older than 18 months. Each video clip must be unedited and without recording enhancements. Each selection should be recorded in one "take." Vocal selections may be chosen from lyric theater (opera, operetta, musical theater), oratorio, symphonic vocal material, art songs, or traditional jazz and cabaret standards. Those hoping to pursue a career in a classical music genre should ideally include a sample in more than one language. Video selections that do not meet these criteria must first be approved for submission by JTVA. Any questions about these video submission requirements may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. (Note: In the event you are selected as a finalist, you may be required to submit the same videos directly to JTVA for use in promotions and fundraising. You will be provided detailed information and assistance on how to do this upon notification of finalist status.) Number of selections required: 2.
