Dear Teachers and Students,
This is to announce that our annual piano festival will be held on 18 August and 25 August 2013, venue to be announced.
The theme for this year’s festival is Musical Nationalism. The suggested repertoire will consist of folk melodies, rhythms, dances, harmonies, instruments, musical forms, and themes from folklore and history that celebrate the cultural and musical identity of a nation.
Musical nationalism is a musical style initially developed by 19th century composers and adapted by later century composers. On the other hand, pieces that are not identified with this nationalistic style are welcome. As in the past festivals, popular “pop” music is not included. However, pianistic transcriptions of other classical music genres are welcome.
Auditions will be on 23 and 30 June 2013, 9am till 12noon at St. Scholastica’s College Manila. Registration fee is 800php per participant.
To avoid delays we highly recommend you to register online. The links are located at the top right corner of this website.
Walk-in auditions will be accommodated on a first come-first served basis. Payments will be accepted on the audition dates 23 and 30 June 2013.
