Students competing in the Preliminary Piano Contest are:

Pre-Primary Division: Jarrett Stelter, son of Vicki and Scott Stelter, Detroit Lakes

Students entering the piano contest have an opportunity for growth in knowledge, performance skills, poise, the sheer fun of making beautiful music, maintaining a positive attitude, and dealing with deadlines.

Student winners of contest preliminaries advance to perform at finals held at Ferguson Hall, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis on March 13-14. Pianists with the highest scores in the Contest Finals are selected for ensemble performance in the State Honors Concert.

This concert involves 700 young performers, playing on 20 grand pianos in ensemble groups, and will be held in June at the Northrop Auditorium, University of Minnesota.
