AROUND THE WORLD FESTIVAL November 14, 2020 Graner Music Recital Hall or Video Festival (see below)
IMPORTANT INFORMATION: 2020 FALL FESTIVAL THEME CHANGED TO AROUND THE WORLD
Dear PPMTA Members,
There has been a change to the theme for the 2020 Fall Festival scheduled for Saturday, November 14, 2020. Due to concerns and complications about running an Ensemble Festival during the pandemic and the unknowns on a day-to-day basis, the theme for the festival has been changed to “AROUND THE WORLD” which was planned for 2021. Hopefully the Ensemble Festival can be held next year. The festival chairs (Susan Marten, Dee Boatman, Donna Caulfield) feel we can better manage this festival during this challenging time. We appreciate your understanding and support as we look forward to planning this fun performance opportunity for our students.
AROUND THE WORLD FESTIVAL FALL 2020 One of the following three options will be used to facilitate this event based on governmental guidelines as the festival approaches.
1. Full Festival with the option of video submissions allowed 2. Small group recitals with the option of video submissions allowed 3. Full video festival
Students will perform one memorized piece to represent the music of an ethnic culture or nation/country to include national folk music, ethnic dances, and patriotic music. The title of the piece must reflect the Around the World theme such as “Japanese Temple,” “Daybreak in Dublin,” “Navajo Legend”. Feel free to contact festival chairs for guidance on particular repertoire or other questions. Method book pieces are acceptable but only from the "Performance" book of the series, NOT the "Lesson" book.
All disciplines are welcome to participate (voice, instrumental, piano). If a recital format is available, only one piano will be provided. Solo vocal and piano selections are to be memorized. Ensembles and solo instrumentalists may use music.
One entry per discipline per student is allowed. Entry fee is $15.00 per entry. Example: A student who studies saxophone and voice would be allowed to perform a selection for each discipline studied. Students may not perform a violin solo and participate in a string ensemble as this would constitute two entries per student in the same discipline.
Students will receive judge's comments and a medal. Costumes are encouraged but optional. Students may write a short paragraph about the culture they have chosen which will be posted on the PPMTA Facebook page.
More information will be forthcoming and will be posted on the PPMTA website. Please contact one of the festival chairs if you have questions or concerns. Again, thank you for your understanding and support of this change to the 2020 Fall Festival.
