Congratulations to all the students who participated in the audition process.  Below you will find the students who are accepted for the final competition.

The string divisions for the festival will be held Friday April 13th at Carpenter Recreation Center (111th and Colorado Blvd).  We are starting 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.
