Begun in 1980 by Dorothy Sutton, the Dorothy Sutton Performance Festival is an opportunity for the talented music student to participate in a State Festival in a Showcase Recital. To assure high standards, the student must first qualify with a Superior rating in Local Preliminary Auditions, and must demonstrate a minimal knowledge of music theory by passing a written theory exam with a grade of 85%. Students performing at the State Festival Showcase Recital will receive a gold medal and a Certificate of Participation.
All entries for the State Festival on November 4 at Indiana University must be entered online by Oct. 16 at 3:00 pm. Encourage your students to participate. Remind them that even though they are assessed, it is not a competition. Everyone who participates has done hard work and we are proud of all of them! Those who qualify to come to the Showcase Recitals are among the best in the State. Let’s make music!
