Want students to be as excited about sonatas and sonatinas as you are?
Each teacher may submit 10 students to play at the annual NSMTA Sonata – Sonatina Festival held at the Music Institute of Chicago. The Festival often has nearly 200 students participating and is designed to give students critiques on their performances. They also receive a blue ribbon for participating, and those who score 90-100 receive medals: gold, silver, and bronze. Gold medalists may play in the Gold Medal Recitals a week after the Festival.
