ELIGIBILITY
The Fleischmann International Trophy Competition consistently features top-class adult choirs from many countries. A program of a cappella music consisting of either three or four contrasting works whose total duration (actual singing) is between 10 and 12 minutes, is required. The music must be purely vocal without the addition of percussion instruments. Choirs whose programs do not comply with the prescribed limits will incur a time penalty. The competition is open to any choir of international standing with a minimum of 20 and maximum of 60 voices; purely children's choirs are not eligible.
    The program must represent an historically balanced and coherent range of styles and must include:
