Each year, the David Karp Piano Festival is hosted by the Piano Department at Kilgore College. It provides local area piano students an opportunity to prepare and perform for formal adjudication. This year’s festival will hold student auditions from 8:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 11th, 2015, in the Anne Dean Turk Fine Arts Building. Selected students will perform in a recital at 2:00 pm in the Van Cliburn Auditorium.
A list of selected repertoire for the Festival can be found at Mundt Music of Longview and at the Kilgore College website. Students many enter in only one solo category: Division I, II and III. Soloists may also enter in the Duet Division IV. Required musical selections will be performed from memory (excluding duets). An original copy of music must be submitted to the judges. Copied music will not be allowed. Judges will select finalists to perform Saturday afternoon in the Van Cliburn Auditorium. Dr. Karp will be awarding trophies to first, second and third place winners from each division.
Each student who plans to enter the Festival needs to send the following information on a 3 x 5 index card: name, age, telephone number, piano teacher’s name and mailing address, division they will be competing in, and the name of the musical piece. A non-refundable $18 entry fee and a self-addressed envelope must accompany each index card. Checks should be made payable to Kilgore College Piano Club. All inquiries and entries need to be addressed to Sandra Siler, Department of Music, Kilgore College, 100 Broadway, Kilgore, Texas, 75662-3204. Phone: 903-983-8120.
