Summer Piano Festival - Online Auditions
A message from the Festival Director:
Dear Parents and Students,
I hope this finds you all safe and well at home! I know these seem to be very uncertain times and summer is still a ways off.
As you know, due to the Covid-19 pandemic we have postponed the auditions for the Summer Piano Festivals to the first weekend in May. In light of the most recent update, and due to the "shelter in place" mandate, I will most likely be holding the auditions on-line via Zoom. This should make it more convenient since you'll be able to do your 15 minute audition right from your own living room! All you need to prepare is a polished piece that you've been working on, or even a section of a larger work that is polished. Then we'll have a short interview and I'll have you sight read something I send in advance. In the meantime, all you need to do in lieu of the "online audition/interview," is upload the Zoom app to your preferred device, and I'll send you an invite via e-mail for the time you requested as we get closer.
I know we are all looking forward to summer in earnest, hoping that things will be back to normal. The least we can do is have a plan in place for summer events in the event that everything runs. The best thing at this point, is to audition if you are interested, and then we'll continue to keep you updated as things progress.
Looking forward to seeing and hearing you all soon!
