The Chapter Honors Competition (CHC) provides an opportunity for advancing students to perform at the highest level, competing for an opportunity to represent SKCMTA at the WSMTA State Conference.
CHC will be held Saturday, March 6, 2021, tentatively at the Bleha Center for Performing Arts at Green River College in Auburn.
Due to COVID-19, competition judges will not be on-site and spectators will not be permitted inside the competition hall. Performances will be video-recorded and reviewed by judges the next day. Students will be permitted to warmup on the piano for two minutes prior to being recorded. To emulate the competition experience, students receive one opportunity to perform. Disinfecting measures will take place between each competitor.
Registration Deadline: January 12, 2021 at 9:30 am.
There will be a lottery for playing order. The lottery will be held at the chapter meeting in January. CHC registration fees must be paid by the start of the meeting. Students are limited to 8 minutes of playing.
Students must check-in at the Rutkowski Learning Center (RLC) upon arrival at Green River College. This is a separate building next to the Performing Arts Center. You may park in any of the west campus parking lots (P1, P2, P3). Students must check-in 20 minutes prior to their scheduled playing time. Map of Green River College Campus.
CHC winners and honorable mentions are invited to perform at the Fine Arts Recital on Saturday, March 14, 2021 at 3:00 pm, tentatively at the Kent First Baptist Church (likely to be a virtual event).
CHC Chair: Julie Swienty, NCTM
