FEES: $15 per student


REGISTRATION: You must register and pay for this by February 22nd, 2008


RECORDING: Your audition recording is due by April 1st, 2008



DESCRIPTION: How much fun to play with other kids! Also, it is a GREAT learning experience! With this event, you can have the opportunity to play with a group of kids close to your age with two at each piano (and possibly many pianos at a time!).

There are two parts to this: local level, state level. You must participate in both in order to do this activity.




In order to participate, you must first send in a recorded audition of the piece to be played.



In May, you must attend four (maybe three - you can be excused from one) rehearsals on Saturday mornings from 8:00-10:00 a.m.



There is a "dress rehearsal" and recital in June, the week before the state convention.




June 13th-15th at the Hyatt Regency in Houston:

You will need to attend rehearsals and the convention recital. This is when you get to really have fun since the music is familiar after having played it many times before.
