Northern Idaho Piano Festival 2019
Celebrating Classical Music
We are excited to have the Northern Idaho Piano Festival in the city of Moscow, ID, sponsored by the Moscow Chapter of the Idaho Music Teachers Association, which is affiliated with the Music Teachers National Association. We are a group of piano teachers in the area, wishing young pianists to have opportunities to perform and receive feedback from professional adjudicators. The theme for our festival is Celebrating Piano Repertoire from the Classical Era.
The student or the student’s teacher must be an Idaho resident to be eligible to participate in the festival. There are 8 sections in which students can participate. Check theFestival Repertoire Guidelines on our websiteto see which section your student shouldenter. Students of any age may enter; participants over the age of 18 should sign up in section H regardless of the level of their performance repertoire. The participant is to perform one piece or multiple pieces by one composer within the time limit. Exception: Students playing in Levels A and B may play pieces from two different composers. No arrangements or concertos are allowed.
Adjudicators are selected and invited by the Moscow Chapter of Idaho Music teachers Association, based on their qualifications and professional experience. We are pleased to announce this year’s adjudicator, Deborah Rambo Sinn.
Each participant will perform for an adjudicator as part of their Section. The adjudicator will provide written comments. After adjudications are finished, adjudicators will recommend selected participants for an honors recital to be held on November 16st at the Administration Auditorium on the University of Idaho campus. The honors recital is open to the public. All participants of the festival, their families and friends are encouraged to attend.
