Non-Competitive Recitals

These recitals are an opportunity for piano and string students of all ages and abilities to participate in the Young Artists Festival in a non-competitive environment.  Recitals will be scheduled from 1-4 pm on Saturday April 14, 2018 and will take place at Skyview High School (8990 York Street, Thornton, CO).  Students will receive written feedback from a judge on their performance.  Students may perform one or two memorized selections with a maximum total performance time of five minutes.  Folk, jazz, classical, and contemporary music are all welcome.  Recitals will be divided by age group (K-2nd, 3rd-5th, 6th-8th, 9th-12th) and specific performance times will be assigned by March 25th.  Participants are invited to give a brief introduction to their musical selection/s by sharing their name, the name of their piece/s and composer/s, and a little background on their selection/s.  Background can include information about the composer, the type of piece, the time period, what you like about the piece, etc.  Registration is $15 and is due March 7th.
