We are excited to invite you to participate in a brand new piano competition for piano students from all around the Northeast Texas area. After much planning and input from a number of local music teachers, we are pleased to inform everyone about what we truly hope will be a quality competition for all ages and levels of advancement.
The Whatley Center for the Performing Arts at Northeast Texas Community
College has graciously allowed all of the East Texas piano teachers and their students to use their facility for the competition. Please refer to the PDF file attachment for the musical selections chosen for this year's contest. We hope that everyone will find something to their liking as the competition judges have endeavored to include a variety of musical styles, historical periods, and composers to choose from.
We have listed the sources from which these musical selections were chosen, but you may also use other sources as long as it contains the original versions. Original copies must be presented to the judges. No xerox copies are allowed. Music should be memorized with the exception of duets for which the original sheet music may be used. The duet competition division, Division lV, will be comprised of any One Piano Four Hands duet of your own personal choice.
The competition will be held on April 8th, 2O17. Cost per student will be $14 and is non-refundable. Entries should be postmarked no later than March
17th, 2017.
