2016 Dorothy Sutton Performance Festival

A successful LVMTA Dorothy Sutton Performance Festival was held Saturday October 8 at Moravian College.  Thirteen teachers entered 130 students who auditioned in piano solo, piano duet, and vocal solo classes.  This represents a slight increase in participation from 2015.  A total of 94 blue ribbons were awarded. 
A big thank you goes to all teachers who worked hard to procure the judges (including last minute changes), who worked the entire day as monitors, theory room proctors, and theory correctors.  Thanks also to Erin Petrella who assisted as a volunteer runner, and to Karen El Chaar, our scheduler.  Special thanks to Gloriana Sewell for tackling multitudinous corrections in the new theory test.
We are grateful to all who participated.  Those who entered students worked long hours in this event, because as usual there were too few teachers involved to split the shifts.  The good-humored team effort of all ensured that the day would be a success!
