2020 State Conference

This year our state competitions and conference will be held entirely online on November 5-7. Competitions will be judged through video submissions, and all events with guest artist Ivo Kahánek at Northern State University will be streamed. Although this is not ideal, our priority is student safety. Your continued participation is, as always, critical to our mission and greatly appreciated. Let us demonstrate our dedication and perseverance despite the circumstances, and enroll record numbers this Fall!

Pianist Ivo Kahánek will present our artist recital on November 5, a masterclass and serve as adjudicator. A musician of tremendous emotional power, depth and expressiveness, Ivo Kahánek has gained a reputation as one of the most exciting artists of his generation and is the Czech Republic's most acclaimed pianist. He is universally recognised as one of the foremost interpreters of Romantic piano music and is a particular specialist in Czech repertoire. He possesses a rare gift of creating an immediate and compelling emotional connection with his audiences.
