  • Piano Auditions and Ensemble Auditions (CAPMT State event)
    • Piano Auditions and Ensemble Auditions are non-competitive, welcoming programs designed to encourage and motivate students of all ages. For many teachers and students, this is their favorite event of the year! Repertoire is performed in an audition, recital, or festival setting, depending on the district/chapter. Students are given constructive comments, along with a rating from 1-5. Students receiving a “5” are invited, but not required, to perform at the CAPMT Northern or Southern Festivals.
