Orchestra Solo & Ensemble Performance Requirements

Substitution of Unlisted Editions for Selections in the PML - Any unabridged edition by a current copyright holder of a selection appearing in the Prescribed Music List may be substituted. UIL Music defines unabridged as containing the same musical content and degree of difficulty from the version appearing in the PML. The director of the performing organization or event shall be responsible for the compliance of any substitute edition. Directors are encouraged to seek approval from the UIL for any unabridged substitution in advance of the performance. Approval shall be determined by comparing the version on the PML with the substitution. If a substitution is performed and is determined to be abridged the performing organization or event shall be subject to penalty as stated in C&CR Section 1110(d)(3)(D) and Section 1108(h)(1).

 

If a multi-movement solo is performed, the entire selection must be prepared unless otherwise noted in this list.
