For the first time participants an audio or video-recording is needed. The most common tool for this is Soundcloud or Youtube, but of course you can use any other provider as long as it provides you/us with an URL-link without any log-in needs. This has to be a solo performance (with or without accompaniment), repertoire free of choice. One piece is enough, duration 5-10 minutes.

Järvi Academy Youth Symphony Orchestra’s (JAYSO) working session is held from 12th until 19th of July. All lessons and rehearsals will be held in Pärnu Concert Hall (Aida 4).
