I thought I'd bump this thread since I've finished and recorded my piece and need to remember how to submit it. Do we still need to submit the score in musicXML or will a pdf do?

Speaking of neurotic, I'm surprised you're going to install a humidity control system within the piano since Steinway does not recommend them. I've always been a little skeptical about these systems. I suspect they are effectively no different tha
