Students perform recital piano pieces from memory, scales, cadences, arpeggios, transposition and sight reading. An impartial adjudicator provided by the American College of Musicians located in Austin, TX heard each student perform their program.
Playing 10 pieces to earn a national gold metal was Jade Van Kley. International gold medal winner playing 15 pieces was Olivia Van den Hul.
Their names were inadvertently omitted from the news release in last week's Plain Talk.
