Choosing Solo Selections

The teacher and the student choose two appropriate pieces to be played at Festival. See Suggested Class Levels to determine what level your student is.

Selections should be kept under 12 min. Long repeats should be omitted, except in short compositions such as at the Primary Level. Long piano interludes should be cut.

Piano accompaniment is required when applicable; CD accompaniment is not allowed. Students must list their accompianist on their entry form to avoid scheduling conflicts. Forms that do not list an accompanist will not be accepted and may be subject to a $10 late fee.

Choosing Duet and Ensemble Selections

Same as outlined above.


Students with less than one year of study, as of March 1st of Festival year, may enter at the Pre-Primary level.

Please see the list of Suggested Class Levels to determine what level a student should be in.

Gold Cups

Students are awarded Gold Cups when they have earned 15 points, 30 points, 45 points, etc.

All Solo selections must be memorized for Gold Cup points. Duet and Ensemble entries may use music.

Gold Cup points are recorded from the highest rating received if performing in more than one Duet, Quartet or Ensemble. Points from different events cannot be combined such as Solo and Duet, Duet and Quartet, Violin Solo and Viola Solo, etc.

If a student has earned at least 10 points towards a Gold CUp they may participate for one year after High School.

Students who have earned a Gold Cup will receive a letter from the Gold Cup Chairman and are encouraged to participate in a recital where they will perform one selection from Festival and receive their Gold Cup.
