Students are required to prepare one piece from the the Romantic or Contemporary time periods. Each student performs his or her memorized piece for two judges. The judges then provide written feedback in addition to a rating. If a student receives the highest rating, “Superior Recitalist,” from both judges, he or she is invited to play in the winners recital the following day. Students who receive a “Superior Recitalist” rating from one judge and a “Superior” rating from the other judge do not play in the recital but will receive a medal. Students who receive a “Superior” rating from both judges receive a ribbon. All students receive a certificate for participation. This event is open to non-NOMTA members.
