Judges and/or festival chairs may stop performances if performance time exceeds the time limit.
Students will receive judge's comments and a medal. Costumes are encouraged but optional, otherwise performance attire required. Students may write a short paragraph about the culture they have chosen which will be posted on the PPMTA Facebook page. These paragraphs must be submitted in a jpeg format (take a picture) and sent via text or email to Susie Marten (719) 231-9272 or email@example.com up to the date of the festival.

There are many words to describe the effects of what the COVID pandemic has had on all of us physically and emotionally—surely you have your favorites. We hope that you, your families and students have been healthy and that you have found successful ways to adapt to teaching in the current situation.
PPMTA is especially proud to announce the non-competitive Winter Fest Recital, planned for February 13, 2021 at Graner Recital Hall and is proceeding with cautious optimism to offer a live recital. The motto that the co-chairs of the Winter Fest recital are operating with is “If Plan A doesn’t work out, there are 25 more letters!”
The Competitive Sonatina Festival will return in the spring of 2022!
