The Kilgore College Bach Piano Festival is held each year in order to offer area piano students the opportunity for formal adjudication of an original composition by J.S. Bach. The 2018 Festival will be Saturday, February 3rd on the Kilgore College campus. Auditions will be from 8:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. in the Anne Dean Turk Fine Arts Building, with a list of winners posted Saturday afternoon. Outstanding students will be chosen to perform in the Bach Festival Performers’ Concert at 7:00 p.m. in the Van Cliburn Auditorium. It is the responsibility of the student or teacher to check the posting of selected performers.
Any original composition by J.S. Bach (excluding concerti) is acceptable for the Festival. Music must be memorized. Each student should bring an original copy of the music for the judge. Copied music will not be allowed. Participants will receive a written critique and a certificate of participation. Trophies will be awarded to those selected who play on Saturday’s Performers’ Concert.
Each student entering the Festival should send the following information on a 3 x 5 index card: name, age, telephone number, teacher’s name and mailing address, and title of the composition.
A non-refundable entry fee of $20 and a self-addressed, stamped envelope must accompany each index card. Failure to send in an index card for each student will result in disqualification of the student.
Entries must be postmarked no later than January 19th, 2018. Checks should be made payable to Kilgore College Piano Club. Inquiries and entries should be addressed to Jonathan Kaan, Department of Music & Dance, Kilgore College, 1100 Broadway, Kilgore, Texas 75662-3204.
