Announcing the annual New London Piano Festival, presented by the Middlesex/New London Chapter of CSMTA! This exciting festival involves solo piano playing at all levels, and piano duets at all levels. Students will perform in short programs with a total of about eight in each program, and will receive evaluations from two judges.
The goals of the New London Piano Festival are to provide students the opportunity to perform in a non-competitive setting and to allow students to hear performances by other young piano players studying at their own level. The festival will encourage ongoing study by providing recognition for achievement at each level of musical progress.
Further incentives to students to develop their skills are outlined in the Gold Cup program. Young pianists will realize they are part of a community of musicians and will develop the sense that they are part of a larger musical experience. This will translate into a feeling of belonging, and nurture their desires to embrace and improve their skills.
