2019 Strings Information and Schedule

Congratulations to all string musicians who participated in a very competitive audition process.  All students were prepared and the judge enjoyed your performances.   Below you will find the students who are accepted for the final competition.

The string divisions for the Festival will be held Friday, April 12th at Carpenter Recreation Center located at 111th and Colorado Blvd.  We will begin at 6:00 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.  We suggest girls wear skirts below the kneecap.   Boys, no ragged jeans or sweatshirts. 


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.  Give your original music – with the measures numbered – to the volunteer.  There should be two warm-up rooms available. Most warm-ups should occur at home. Only a light rehearsal will be available at Carpenter.   Please warm up in the order of your performance.
