2018 Piano Competition Schedule and Information

Piano Information and Schedule

Congratulations to all pianists who participated in the audition process.  Below you will find the students who are accepted for the final competition.  In order to provide more performance opportunities, the Beginner Division is split into two levels.

The piano divisions for the festival will be held Wednesday, April 11th and Thursday, April 12th at Carpenter Recreation Center located at 111th and Colorado Blvd.  Both evenings will begin at 6 pm.  As students enter the recreation center, turn left just past the registration desk.  The competition rooms are on your right.

Below you will find your division’s start time and competition number.  Students will be introduced by their competition number.   The competition is a public performance and concert attire is required.


Please arrive 15-20 minutes before your division’s start time.  As you arrive, please check-in with the volunteer located in the hallway outside the competition area.  You will need to bring your original music with measures numbered.   There will be a couple warm-up rooms available, however we encourage in-depth warm-ups to occur at home.  You may warm-up in the order of your performance.

Non-Competitive Recitals & Creative Workshops

On Saturday April 14th  the Young Artists Alliance will be sponsoring non-competitive recitals (for pianists and string instruments), a Young Artists Chorale workshop, and two innovative art workshops.  A musical theater workshop will also be occurring the week of April 10-14th.  Registration is still open!  Check out details below.

Stage rehearsals are designed to give you an opportunity to walk on stage and to adjust dynamics to the competition room.  We allow students to go through their selections one time.  An in-depth practice session is not appropriate.  Sign up with the volunteer when you enter the competition room.  This practice session is on a first come, first served basis.
