(Tentative snow date: March 6)
April 18, 2016 Awards Concert at 1:00 pm
Winners: Each winner will receive publicity and a cash award. The cash award for a chamber group will be the same as that for a soloist and will be shared equally by all members of the group.
Piano accompanist: If a piece has piano accompaniment, an accompanist must be provided by the student. Although the piano accompanist will not be judged, his/her playing will have an impact on the musical presentation of the student’s audition. Therefore, please give careful consideration to the choice of accompanist. The same accompanist must play at the Awards Concert.
