What I Think the Multiple Piano Festival Teaches
— from the BAMTA President

Of all the incentive programs I’ve used with my students over these last 50 years of teaching (Achievement Day, Guild Auditions, CSMTA Competitions, Federated Festival, my own Practicing Contest as well as 4 studio recitals per year), BAMTA’s Multiple Piano Festival has been the incentive event my students stick with the longest.  Even after they think they’ve become too grown up to sign up for Achievement Day, Guild Auditions, or the Federated Festival, and are too caught up with other activities to put in the time needed to prepare for competition events, they seem to want to play in Multiple Piano Festival.  Sometimes they even come back after they graduate from high school to play with the adults and alums.  There is something about the fun of making music up on that big stage, playing on a freshly tuned piano, with a dozen or more other pianists, that’s worth their time. I personally love collaborative playing the most. So, to me, the Multiple Piano Festival is simply:

THE MOST FUN I CAN HAVE PLAYING THE PIANO!

“If nothing ever changed, there’d be no butterflies!”

You’ve certainly heard the saying, “When life hands you lemons, MAKE LEMONADE!!”  So here’s our Covid-19 35th Multiple Piano Festival version of lemonade!!!

At this point in time, it appears likely that the COVID-19 Pandemic will prevent us from safely presenting the Multiple Festival as we have for the past 3 ½  decades.  However, a few of us have banded together to find a new way! The following is a description of our alternative plan which, we feel, will allow everyone who wants to be involved – pianists, teachers, parents, audience members and former students from around the world – to fully participate and be safe.
